Applesauce Cake mix review from Taste of Gluten Free...

Taste of Gluten Free sent me a 19.5 ounce gluten free applesauce cake mix to try. I love apple cake and haven't made one for quite some time now, so I was really excited to give this mix a try.  The mix makes a 9 inch cake and retails for $5.00 on their website.
The directions were fairly easy. I combined the the wet ingredients called for in the directions, added the dry mix and poured into a 9" square pan.  I baked the cake for the full 35 minutes in a 350 degree oven, and although the cake tester came out clean I added another 5 minutes onto the baking time as the cake still looked quite moist yet, and I wanted to be sure it was done. I let it cool completely before cutting and the cake was one of the moistest cakes I have ever made.
I could  taste the spices slightly a little more than the apples, leaning the cake a little more in a spice cake direction for my tastes.
This gluten free applesauce cake was extremely moist, so moist in fact that I was leery of attempting to frost it, so I just added a dollop of whipped topping and served.
Overall, this is a very tasty cake and I will be adding it as a regular to my pantry.
