I tried this yesterday. I didn't like it. The consistency was sort of rubbery. Not very sweet either.

I am diabetic and tried this cake. I did not like it. I guess I am just used to a sweeter cake.

I made this cake for Easter and I was very happy with the result. It was moist, lovely spongy texture, and not too sweet. I served it with raspberry and vanilla ice cream. I did use 4 eggs instead of the substitute. It did give it an eggy odor so maybe next time I will try the substitute. I'd like to try other flavors using this as a formula to keep calories down.

Made it for the first time tonight! It is great! I also used 4 eggs instead of the egg substitute. I checked it after 40 minutes and it was done. Very moist!

This cake has become my families favorite. Moist and chocolatey, easy and quick to prepare. I use five whole eggs instead. After cooling, I sprinkle it lightly with powdered sugar to make it eye appealing as well as taste appealing.

Sorry to be a spoilsport but this cake was very disappointing. I was looking for an enhanced boxcake recipe that was fit for company, I was extreemly disappointed and embarassed. It was dry and slightly chocolately....made as written. If I realized it was a healthy diet cake I would've gone with butter or oil instead of applesauce and added lots more chocolate. If you are watching your fat and sugar and don't care for a dry cake this is it!!!
