This cake was a hit with everyone. It's an unusual cake--a lot of "stuff" (apples, walnuts, and raisins) and the cake holds it all together, like a chunky fruit cake but much better. I followed the advice of other reviewers and used only 1 cup of oil. I didn't add any applesauce because I didn't have any. I cooked it in a 9 x 13 pan for 45-50 minutes, which I felt was a tad too long. I was waiting for the cake to pull away from the sides, but by the time that happened the cake was a little overdone. Next time I'll try 35-40 minutes and undercook it by a couple of minutes. Don't disgrace this cake with storebought icing--make your own! Cream Cheese Frosting II from this website goes great with this cake, only cut the amount of cream cheese in half.
