This Buckwheat Applesauce Cake is pictured with frosting made of:

  • Soy-Free Earth Balance (1 Cup) -- semi-room temperature
  • Arrowroot powder (1/2 cup)
  • Maple syrup (1/2 cup)
  • Vanilla extract (1/2 tsp)

However, the cake is excellent without the frosting, and also lower in the glycemic index.
