The big variable in this recipe is the amount of moisture in the applesauce. The only way to tell is if you mix the cake and the batter is quite runny, when it should be thick like muffin batter. In that case, add another 2 - 4 Tbsp flour, or 2 -4 more Tbsp of quick oats.
If the batter seems quite stiff, add 2 - 4 Tbsp water.
The frozen apple juice concentrate adds a lot of sweetness, but agave syrup or brown rice syrup would also work. If you prefer to use stevia, add 1/4 cup more applesauce in place of the apple juice concentrate.
For a nice variation, add 1/2 cup raisins or chopped walnuts. The cake won't be as low in fat and calories, but it'll be more nutritious.
I made the lowfat applesauce cake over the weekend and it was delicious and very easy to make!!!! Thanks for providing the recipe - Ashley G.
