SO HOW'D IT GO?

thank you unblondie, do you know how much it is in grams?

I did a quick Google search (Google can tell you anything!) and found this link as the top result: http://www.recipegoldmine.com/kitchart/kitchart2.html

It says a 1/2 cup of butter or margarine is 115 grams. :-)

delicious cake!  i used pecans instead of walnuts and doubled the spices and my cupcakes were great.  i frosted them with a cream cheese/buttercream frosting & i think i got close to 21 or 22 cupcakes out of this recipe. the apple flavor is pretty subtle though and i bet these would be great with some diced up apple added to them.  id definitely use this recipe again.

This cake turned out really well...a lot like the non-vegan kind my mom used to make. 

I put it in a 9x13 pan due to having no fancy springform/bunt pans, and all was well.  I also left off the icing.  Next time I would DEFINITELY add some raisins.

Great recipe--thanks!

My husband and I aren't vegans (or even vegetarians) but we made this cake when we had a vegan friend over for dinner the other night.  It was fantastic - everyone raved about it and wanted the recipe!!

A couple of notes - I substituted apple butter for the applesauce because I happened to have some on hand, and they're usually a decent substitute for each other in baking (although the apple butter may have added a little more spiciness to the cake than the applesauce would have).

there weren't any specifics about the size or preparation of the pan, so I tried a 9" springform pan which I lined with parchment paper.  Perfect!  The recipe makes one somewhat thicker-than-average layer when made in this type of pan.

The frosting was wonderful texture-wise, but I thought it could use a little more flavor, so I added about 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract to it.  Again, perfect!

This was a really great cake!  I'll definitely be making it again!
