"This is a very good recipe - easy to put together and a fantastic cake to make when resources are "running low" (i.e., no eggs in the refrigerator). I had made a similar cake previously, but I like the additions of coffee and cinnamon and will be using this recipe now instead."

"Could you replace the oil with applesauce, or fat free margaring to make it virtually fat free? I have made cakes before with those substitutions, and it did work"
