Great recipe When I first saw this recipe my thought was it sounds yummy but there is too much sugar in it. So I used sugar free devils food cake mix (which is 16 oz instead of 18.25) and it still turned out great. I also used natural applesauce instead of the oil, egg substitute, and fat free sweetened condensed milk. The end result was fabulous and I didn't add the frosting at the end either. Thanks for the recipe Jif! :) 12/08/2011
