This cake is so easy to throw together, and even easier to make disappear!! It is very moist and flavorful. It is delicious warm from the oven, or served as a snack cake. My friend Trish gave me this recipe, and I know I have made it at least 50 times over the years.

Excellent cake! Even my cake hating husband enjoyed this. The batter was so stiff that I was worried that the recipe was incorrect, but it turned out moist and fluffy and tasty! This is sure to become a family fave.

The cake was great and everyone loved it. I did make a few changes. I substituted the oil with applesauce and I added raisins instead of nuts.

Not a cake i will make again. i had to cook it 20min longer than instructions said because center was still very runny. tasted very sugary and it overpowered the apples.
