I got this from Linda, my friend of 40 years! She has given the recipe to many people and once you try it, you'll know why. I've made it with a combo of white and whole wheat flour. I've also used applesauce in place of the oil - it still tastes great!

We loved it. I used 1 cup applesauce with 1/2 cup oil and it came out perfect! That was the replacement for 1 1/2 cup oil that many reviews felt was too much oil. Baking time was 55 minutes in a Bundt pan. I diced 2 tart green apples. Very easy recipe with great results. I also have made this in a crock pot using the bread or cake insert sold by rival. I cut the recipe in half and cooked on high setting for 2 hours. Either method you use to cook it comes out fantastic!

I made this recipe and it tastes absolutely great only i found it had too much oil. I should have read some of the reviews first then i would have realized and do some substitutions

Fabulous recipe! I replaced the 2 eggs with 4 Tbs warm water plus 1/2 tsp baking soda plus 1-1/4 tsp cream of tartar and replaced 1 cup of the oil with applesauce and used gluten free flour (adding 1 tsp Xanthan gum to compensate for the gluten reduction) and it was mouthwateringly delicious! Thank you for posting it!
