I've made this same recipe for years and there's never a crumb left. The apples just make it so good. I first tasted this at a friend's house at least 25 years ago and I've made it on many occasions since always with good success! A truly terrific cake!

I made this cake for the first time today and I have to say it was one of the very best apple cakes I have ever tasted. My husband thought it was terrific. It will be one of our favorites from now on.

GREAT! We loved it. Made dietary changes as follows: substituted 50/50 sugar/splenda for the sugar, apple juice for orange juice (that was all I had) and used 1/4 cup oil and 3/4 cup unsweetened applesauce in place of the oil.
