This is a very moist and delicious cake. Sweetness of it was right on. It was so very light. Used cool whip on top and it just made it. Thanks for posting this recipe.
Not too sweet; an excellent treat! I made these as muffins this morning for breakfast. My DH ate 3 & I hate to admit it, but I did too. I used 3 apples & a heaping tsp of cinnamon & they were fantastic. This recipe made 16 muffins for us.
I made following the recipe, and the spices were right on. I did add 1 c. chopped walnuts. My cake looked nothing like the picture posted, in texture or color. It must be because Bayhill used lots more spices and cut the oil. Mine was lighter in color and super moist. I used Grammie Bea's Special Vanilla Frosting to ice the cake, since I was making her cake, and this cake was in a class all it's own. 5 stars all the way for this delicious fall treat! We will make this again and again because it's so wonderful!
