packed brown sugar
heavy whipping cream
This is a wonderfully different sort of cake. My great grandma made this when I was a kid, when she lost her mind to alzheimer's disease the recipe went with her. The only thing I can say is that I think there may have been a typo on the baking time. I baked this for an hour instead of thirty minutes and it came out great. Due to the oil content of the cake the toothpick came out clean even though it was not all the way done. Also, I remember when my grandma made this she poked holes in the cake for the topping to seep into the cake which I think makes it all the more better.
Batter baked for 45 minutes in tube pan, yet failed to cook through to the center. Maybe too many "wet" ingredients (calls for 4 cups of apples)?
Sweetness of cake made caramel topping superfluous. For fans of dense, sugary cakes only.
This cake is delicous, especially for fall. I cut the oil in it! I sub'd 3/4 cup apple sauce and 1/4 cup oil for the 1 1/2 cups oil it asked for. The cake was perfect!!!
I haven't made the recipe yet, but a friend did and it was fabulous. Hint: My friend made the cake the night before and it seemed to moist and runny so got up in the morning and cooked it a while longer and it was great.
Excellent cake...moist and yummy. I shredded the apples instead of chopping them for a smoother consistency.
Add cinnamon - use at least a half of a cup more sliced apples - up to a cup more. Bake longer. This is one of our family's favorite recipes!
really good and really easy. I put the apples in the food processor and pulsed till they were minced but not liquid. worked really well. caramel topping is a plus. definitely will make again.
The cake was somehow dry even with 1 1/2 cups of oil and 4 cups of apples. I had to cook it for almost an hour for the center to be done and by then the outside was hard. I love the caramel topping and if this cake wasn't doused in that I wouldn't bother eating it.
