    This cake is good. In order to cut some fat and calories, I only used 1/2 cup butter and added 1/2 applesauce to make up for it. I also cut the sugar in half to only 1/2 cup. I didn't have buttermilk, so used light sour cream instead. I also used mini chocolate chips and left out the nuts and coconut. I still thought it was yummy and even my picky boys ate it.  -  09 Aug 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)

    Oh my. Soooo good. My husband and I can't get enough of this. We left out the coconut and walnuts and it still turned out beautiful--great flavor and texture. After mashing 3 bananas, I had a quarter cup more than is called for but I used it all anyway. Worked great. This is a new family favorite! Thank you.  -  13 Nov 2004  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)

    Turned out great!! Knowing a teen boy would scarf all of this down fast, I made a few healthy subs...1/2 cup brown sugar, 1/2 cup light margarine, 1/2 cup apple sauce, 1/2 cup non-fat yogurt, 1/2 cup ww flour, 1 cup old fashioned oats and I used milk choc chips (what I had on hand). Thanks for sharing your recipe!!  -  11 Dec 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
