Delicious and moist cake. A fall favorite of mine. Made it once for company and once for church potluck. It went fast! Will be making this again. My mom always makes this cake with just a sprinkling of powdered sugar instead of frosting. It's good that way, too!

Another winning recipe from MizzNezz! I made this in a bundt pan,took it to a potluck supper and it got rave reviews. I used about 3/4 cup of oil and 3/4 cup of applesauce to cut the fat. Also, I was worried about allergies to nuts so I didn't add the walnuts and instead used 1/2 cup of oats to give it a bit of texture. There is a lot of wonderful, gooey caramel frosting -what a treat! My cake took 1 hour and 20 minutes to cook. The cake is very moist and very tasty - and tastes just as good the next day. Definitely a keeper!
