    Delicious and nutritious. I used coconut sugar. Worked out perfectly. Next time I’ll make it with chia eggs to see if I can make it vegan 👍

    Just amazing.  Spent a lot of time looking for oil or butter but still very moist even without any.  Made hoping grandchildren would like cake with hidden vegetables but there will be none left by tomorrow when they come.  Husband and I can't stop eating  Didn't need icing.
