Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease and flour two 8 inch pans. Mix together the flour, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the oil, sugar, eggs and vanilla. Stir in the flour mixture, then fold in the apples and walnuts.
  3. Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake in the preheated oven for 25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Allow to cool.
  4. To make the frosting: In a saucepan, melt the butter and brown sugar over medium heat. Stir in the evaporated milk. Bring mixture to a boil, then cook for 3 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Allow mixture to cool, then fill and frost cake layers. Sprinkle with walnuts, if desired.

Jessica...I just wanted to thank you for sharing this AMAZING recipe!! I used a 13x9 inch pan instead, and it turned out absolutely delicious! My whole family loved it, and I will definitely share this recipe with everyone! Ps...the caramel frosting was to die for! I think I will use it as a dip for granny smith apple slices. Pps...in the ingredients, you don't mention baking powder, but in the directions you do. I used 1/2tsp...turned out fine. Try putting a slice in the microwave for a minute - yum yum

This was _ok_, nothing more. It makes a VERY heavy cake with a batter the texture just slightly more fluid than taffy. Baking took about 35 minutes in the suggested 8-inch round pans, which I layered. Followed recipe exactly with 1/2 tsp baking powder since its measurement is left out, and chopping the apples since it never tells you to do that. I find it too heavy and rich, but if that's what you want give it a go!

WHAT A JEWEL OF A CAKE. THIS IS A WONDERFUL MOIST CAKE. FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS TO THE T AND YOU WILL NOT FAIL. ONLY THING IS. IF I WERE YOU I WOULD DOUBLE THE CARAMEL ICING RECIPE BECAUSE YOU WILL EAT 1/3 OF IT BEFORE YOU GET IT ON THE CAKE. I USED REAL BUTTER IN THE ICING INSTEAD OF THE FAKE STUFF. BELIEVE ME IT MAKES A DIFFERENT IN TASTE. THANKS FOR THE RECIPE.

Very good! Everyone who has tried this has enjoyed it. I did add 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon to the cake for additional flavor. Also baked it in a 9 x13 pan for approximately 55 - 60 minutes. If you want to tone down the sweetness, top with whip cream or ice cream instead of the frosting. Delicious either way.

This is a wonderful, rich, moist cake. I brought it to a ladies' tea and I had people begging me for the recipe! I made it in a bundt cake form (which took twice as long to cook) and then drizzled the icing over the top and poured the rest down the middle. Yummm!!!!

This was such a great dessert! My family loved it! I made it for thanksgiving. Howvever, I did sub. 1 cup of apple sauce for the oil and used only 1/4 cup of oil instead. I also had to cook it for about 5-10 mins longer. Other than that it was so good, every family will love it!

OMG!!! This recipe is awesome! I made it and shared some with my neighbors because they gave me all these apples and they had to have the recipe. The only thing is I added 1 teaspoon cinnamon and since I had no walnuts I left them out. I've made this cake twice this week. This is a definite keeper, I hope Jessica sees this thanks, Jessica. Thanks for sharing. Signed, The Grinch

Made in long 9x13 pan. Final taste very good however don't attempt to make this in layers. Very heavy cake and batter is like cookie dough. Carmel topping is very tasty but not "frosting" at all. This makes a great single layer coffee cake.
