This was absolutely delicious! Don't pass this one up...this will be a favorite for a long time. Wanted to make something different besides the normal crisps and cobblers. I'm surprised there isn't more ratings. Make it.. you won't be sorry!
Really Great! I changed this a little to be more diabetic friendly: 2 cups apple butter in place of the sugar, vegetable oil and butter, and didn't put on the glaze. Left out the walnuts as personal preference. Resulting batter was thick, but cake had a really nice texture and I was able to safely serve it to my guests. Cooked for 50 minutes at 375.
