This is a great recipe... when I make it I substitute the oil for 1 1/2 cups of apple sauce... everything else stays the same. Its much less fattening and just as delicious!!

I did everything I could to make this cake healthier which usually makes it taste worse, but it was still the best cake I have ever made. I brought it to a potluck and everyone agreed. I used ap...

I have made this recipe several times for birthdays. It always gets rave reviews. I usually make only 2 layers and frost it with cream cheese frosting. Wonderful and original!
