My grandmother made this cake for us grandchildren for many many years, but the REAL recipe is made with 2 cubes of butter not OIL, everything else is the same. It is not greasy.

This was not a hit at our house. The cake had a very oily texture. We did not eat it. Sorry.

This cake is very good. Used 1/2 cup less sugar in the cake, and 1 cup less sugar in the frosting, as I find with too much sugar you can't taste the food as well. Also works well subbing applesauce for half the oil, and using half whole wheat flour.

This recipe is "the Best". I read others reviews and expected the batter to be thick, but not soooo thick. It was more like a crumble mixture, and I literally had to press it into the pan with my hand. But, to my surprise, it was fantastic! Everyone loved it, as it was quite different with a very cruchy crust and soft and almost toffee like middle. Forget the frosting, it doesn't need it. Lovely cold but extra special served warm as a desert, with whipped cream and dusted with powdered sugar.

Excellent apple cake! Don't be discouraged by the batter's thickness, it is actually more like a dough than a batter, but remember that apples are full of water and it balances out. The icing is awesome!

Really is the BEST apple cake ever! I usually make it without the frosting, it's still good. Even tried it using wheat flour. One note: when the recipe says "batter will be thick," that is the understatement of the year. The batter will be extremely thick.

first time i've used vegetable oil for a cake and you know what? it tasted great:) very flavourful but i think next time i'll reduce oil a bit as the middle was just a tad too dense.

I loved this cake!!!! I made this for my grandmother's birthday. I was nervous because she is a great baker! Everyone loved it and my grandma had two pieces!! I did add golden raisins, crushed pecans and vanilla to the batter. I also used the cream cheese II recipe from this site and added cinnamon and white vanilla for extra flavor and topped with sugared pecans!!! This was a big hit! Thanks for the recipe I will definitely be making this again and again!!!
