I’ll put an extra few apple slices in with it for moisture. Learned that from my Mama. It’s got lots of nuts. I’m crazy for nuts in cakes. Oh, there’re a lot of other reasons, but for now, you get the idea.

  1. What I can I use in lieu of coconut?

    1. Hi, Erika! If you don’t like the coconut taste/flavor or maybe have an allergy, then try some finely shredded/grated carrots. Since we have nuts, walnuts, you could also add more nuts or a second different nut, like Brazil nuts. You could use fresh coconut if you don’t want shredded sweetened or even a teaspoon of coconut extract. Crazy that you pulled this recipe up, I just got unsweetened applesauce yesterday to make it, too! xoxx ally

  2. For a “rogue baker,” it looks and sounds like you know what the heck you’re doing, Miss Ally! 😉 Thanks for this recipe to inspire lovin’ from the oven. Autumn was meant for such as this, xo.

    1. Miss Kim!! You would be proud of me! I’m improving!! It’s a yummy cake! Me thinks maybe even R would likeee! xoxo ~ally
