What went wrong. There is so much oil it soaked through a napkin and when I push on the cake is runs out. Has a very bland flavor and the apples are mush despite I cut them then kinda big.

This cake was delicious! I had tons of apples and I was getting sick of making only apple pies, so I tried this one out. I did change a few things, though. I didn't use the cherries because I don't like them and I used crushed almonds instead of walnuts because we have a realative allergic to walnuts. And, at the end, while the cake was still hot, I poked holed in the top and poured hot caramel (from a jar) over it. All the hot caramel sunk into the cake. To die for!!!

This is fantastic. I made this once with apples and blue berries and once with bananas and cranberries. Delicious with a vanilla glaze over it. I also added a single serving of flavoured apple sauce. I just find it always makes cakes more moist.

Gigi, thank-you so much! This cake is wonderful! Moist, full of apple flavor, and pretty to boot with the specks of cherries. This will be the holiday gift from me to my neighbors this year. Delicious! gi

Oooo, this was YUMMY! VERY moist and tender. I loved the slightly crisp, buttery outside and fruity, yummy, moist inside. I think I may add a banana or 2 next time, but it was great as is. I did add 1 teaspoon of vanilla instead of 1/2 teaspoon, but that was my only change. This was a simple delicious cake that I will be making again! Thanks for sharing. :)

YUM! I used 1/2 oil and 1/2 applesauce. Very moist. I cut up and froze in zip lock bags, and when I eat I simply put them in a toaster oven.

The cherries gave this cake reddish color on the inside which was quite unusual but great for holiday seasons, apples gave it moisture, while the nuts were the crispy little bits that improved cake's texture. I'm definitely making this cake again.
