“Mininum ingredients, easy to make and healthier than many oily cake mixes. I am posting this so that I can get the nutritional information. It makes a great vegan cake, brownie, muffins or pudding depending on what you add. For a denser fudge cake add up to one cup of dark chocolate chips. some other favourites of mine are 2/3 cup of chopped nuts, cherries, coconut etc. You can reduce the cocoa slightly for a less chocolately cake. Also you can use normal wheat flour. Without any oil it really does benefit from some chocolate chips. Another thing I like to do is make up the dry mix in batches and put it in jars in bags and then all I need to do is sift it into the wet mix or give the dry mix away as gifts in nice jars. It is also nicer the nice down and because of the moistness from the applesauce it keeps well, freezer and defrosts and heats up beautifully especially if making puddings.”
