    Has anyone made this cake with less sugar and oil? Sounds excessive to me and not very good for anyone counting calories!!

    I forgot to ask - what kind of flour do you use - plain or self raising?

    scottyhopper, you can use SR flour and still add the baking soda , if you use plain you would need to add more baking poweder otherwise it may does not rise .

    I am not much of a cook but I will replace the sugar with either equal powder or similar
    & some of the oil with apple sauce...as a person with diabetis I never slavishly follow
    instructions but replace things using my brain

    Its obviously a typo - mix everything first then taste - then add what you think is enough sugar!!!! It depends on which apples you use too!
