Made this with a few substitutions. Substituted a 1/2 cup of applesauce for a 1/2 cup oil and 3/4 cup of Splenda for a 3/4 cup sugar. Substituted cayenne pepper for the chipolte because I couldn't find the ground chipolte. Used walnuts instead of pecans, only because they were handy. Used a jar of caramel sauce and added cayenne to it for the glaze. Brought this to work where it got a lot of attention and a few people who returned for a second piece. Will definitely make it again.
