I looooove apple cake. So when this one came to me in a publication from the Bucoda Improvement District, I tagged it immediately. Have not made it yet but certainly have added it to the list.

This was absolutely delicious. I made it exactly as written, and it turned out perfect. I may try substituting some apple sauce for the oil next time, just to make it a bit healthier but other than that I wouldn't change a thing.
Thanks so much for posting!
