"This is a copy of the recipe from my Grandmothers' recipe book. It's an excellent apple spice raisin cake that has the amazing ingredient of mayonnaise!"
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

1 1/2 teaspoons
apple - peeled, cored, and chopped
coarsely chopped walnuts
to save time, I used a spice cake mix and just added the mayo, milk, apples, nuts, and raisins. Yummy!!
I've been making this cake with consistently excellent results for over 25 years. I make a homemade buttercream frosting that I frost similarly to a german chocolate cake - just between the layers and on top, not the sides. It the most requested cake for family get togethers.
Ran out of milk; just used water and it was still moist. I put a caramel frosting on it instead of the cream...yummy. So easy; like the "dump" cakes.
Excellent cake that's a hit with family and friends. I have a buddy who bakes cakes as a side job, and he absolutely loved it. My amendments to the recipie is replacing the milk with apple juice and adding two teaspons of vanilla extract. This would also make a great carrot cake.
I followed the recipe exactly except for the frosting, I had a can of cream cheese frosting on hand so I used that instead and oohhh man is it delicious. Thanks for the recipe!
And amazin' it truly is!! I cut the recipe in half, and it made exactly 18 cupcakes, which were perfectly baked at 20 minutes. I added additional spice, per personal preference. If you like a little kick, you can add a couple good shakes of white or black pepper, which will leave a pleasant warmth on the tongue. I frosted them with a basic cream cheese frosting, gently laced with allspice. The cupcakes did not dome even slightly, but came out just about level with the tops of the papers when filled about 3/4 with batter. The crumb is exquisitely fine and tender, and they're so moist that they don't even shed a crumb when bitten into or pulled apart. For this reason, they freeze perfectly when wrapped airtight. Old-fashioned, wholesome deliciousness.
