This recipe was brilliant .It is ideal for those with an egg allergy ,it is quick to make, delicious and it was enjoyed by all memmbers of my family.

This was pretty good, I did however make a few changes. I used unsweetened soymilk instead, and only 1/2 tsp nutmeg. I didn't think there was enough batter for a 9x13 pan, so I used a 7x11 pan...

This was great one of the girls I work with is allergic to eggs and her favorite candies are rum balls so she loved this cake!! I left the raisins out and added some chocolate glaze to the cake....

Wow!!! This is one very tasty applesauce cake , than you Carol.

Super easy to make! I cut back on the milk - added a bit more applesauce and vanilla. Didnt have dark rum but had Malibu so instead of raisins I used coconut. Used golden sugar instead of white....

My family loved this cake. I used rum extract, that was the only change I made. I personally do not like nutmeg very much and i felt like it overpowered the taste so next time I will put in more...
