EXCELLENT! I read previous reviews and also cut sugar back to 1 & 1/2 C. I reduced oil to 1/2 C. and then added 1/4 C. applesauce. I didn't have self rising flour; used 1 C. All-Purpose, 1 & 1/4 tsp. baking powder and pinch of salt for every 1 C. of self-rising flour. Cake was wonderful! Didn't use nuts because I have two toddlers that don't do nuts yet. I highly recommend the butterscotch chips. Will definitely make again!

Sorry, this was a waste of my time and apples. Didn't like the texture or taste. Will not make again.

These are delicious and easy to make. I cut the sugar to 1 1/2 cups as we like to taste more apple than sugar, I used 4 cups of apples and an extra teaspoon of vanilla. Kids and adults alike loved this recipe. I am thinking of trying Hershey's Cinnamon Chips on top next time! Made it twice in as many days!

We absolutely LOVED this recipe! My husband and his family (all chocolate lovers) thought this was great! I didn't add the nuts however because of a nut allergy, but it tasted wonderful just the same...

I thought this was wonderful, my husband preferred it without the butterscotch chips.

I was doomed after making these just everyone wants them! I don't use nuts though since my husband doesn't like them, but they taste great all the same. I tend to use more then 1 cup of butterscotch chips. That's the best part!

This is a very yummy recipe! Instead of using oil, I used 1/2 cup light butter and 1/4 cup pancake syrup since we watch our fat and calories. The butterscotch chips make the recipe! Make a full recipe and watch it get devoured!
