This is a cake I use all the time, I love the results, it is super moist and extra delicious. For a little more lift, wait to add the vinegar at the very end, stir in quickly and bake immediately.

Pretty decent for a vegan cake. I used cake flour instead of ap flour. The cake turned out a little "tougher" though than a dairy and egg-added cake. I am thinking perhaps if I add a little more fat (oil) to the next batch it will crumble a little more and be a little more tender. Any thoughts?

I am thinking of doing this recipe. I don't have apple sauce though. Could I make it myself with real apples? What else can I use instead?

can this recipe be used to make an eggless wedding cake?

really need to know how much this makes....especially since you have to use it immediately after putting in vinegar - don't have time to make another batch to fill pans, and don't want to double it if it will make WAY too much that I can't use on the next batch when my pans are cooled again and washed. Help with yield????

Can this recipe be doubled? Used for a 1/4 to 1/2 sheet cake pan?

I made 1 dozen cupcakes and a 4" round cake (3" tall) with this recipe. My carnivorous husband noticed a slightly different texture, but said they were delicious and moist. Thanks for the recipe!
