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!
