"Delicious!! I've been using this recipe (with minor changes) for years. It is always requested when I cater to groups who meet in the mornings. I've cut back successfully on the amount of oil by using 1 + 1/2 cups applesauce and 1/2 cup of oil. My recipe calls for 2 grated apples and 4 cups grated raw carrots."
