"This is my husband's favorite. I first made it over thirty years ago. You can use canned peaches or pineapple in place of the sliced apples."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

Wow, this was really good! The cake, without any fruit, was amazing. I made mine as pineapple upside down. I did double the amount of brown sugar and butter it call for the bottom of the pan, wich was, to my taste, a very good choice. The other thing I made different was 1/2 cup unsalted butter, just 1/2 cup sugar, and I sifted the flour with the baking powder, I don´t know why i did it because the recipe does not call for that step, but was glad I did, the cake was super moist, it was like eating silk, the flavour and texture was spectacular.
I will try this again, for sure, with other fruits, but also without any fruit and this time, with no fruit, I will use 2/3 cups of sugar. I really don´t like very sweet deserts, thats why when the cake is with fruit 1/2 cup of sugar is enough, but if there is no fruit, then I will need a little more sugar to compensate.
I just made this as per the instructions, I used frozen apple slices. Not sure what went wrong, I thought it was cooked after 40 minutes, the cake was nice and brown and tester was dry when I tried it in several places but when I turned it over onto the serving plate it was not cooked on the top, the batter was still runny. Needless to say, I salvaged what cooked parts that I could and the taste and texture were amazing. Will try it again sometime. I have been baking for 45 years and this is a first. got a good laugh and 4 small portions of desert.
This was yummy. I made it as a pineapple upside down cake and everyone liked it. In place of shortening I used 1/4 c. butter and 1/4 c. Enova oil, but I think I'd use all butter next time. As another reviewer suggested, I used 3/4 c sugar instead of a whole cup and it certainly didn't need more. Next time I'll make a little more of the butter/brown sugar mixture to put on the bottom because it was a smidge dry, but the flavor was really good. Certainly will make again.
Seriously easy, seriously fast, seriously moist and oh-so-delicious. I added about 1/4 cup of pineapple juice to the batter and it gave it a little extra "oomph."
I have made this at least twice a week for the last 3 weeks! I can't seem to keep it in the house. They eat it as fast as I make it. I have passed it on to a couple of people who have had the same results. Extra yummy with vanilla ice cream!!! I always double and bake in a 9 x 13. It's simple and DELICIOUS!!!!
I cannot believe I found something this delicious. I have made it for guests and it was such a hit. It's very moist and great to eat while it's still warm. One suggestion is that it is very sweet and I have therefore modified the sugar from 1 cup to 1/2 cup.
This was a great cake! I used Pineapple Rings and put Marischino Cherries in the centers but will skip the cherries next time as no one at them. My family of 5 ate all but one slice of this cake in one sitting and that was after a rather large dinner! I used butter...not a fan of Crisco. Reduced sugar to 3/4 cup and used 4T. butter in the topping. My family requested more "goo" next time so I will double the butter and brown sugar and see how that works. I made this in my favorite cast iron skillet and it came out easily. This one is definately going in the recipe box! Thank you!
Excellent! Thank You for the recipe. I used Splenda Brown Sugar and 1/2 Cup of Splenda and reduced sugar to 1/2 Cup. Family Loved it.
