I love this recipe because the cake has a thin, crunchy crust and a soft, delicious inside. With the butter cream sauce, it's almost like eating candy.

"There is never enough of this for my family - every time it is gone they ask me to make it again!"

"This has been an all-time favorite cake in our family for nearly 30 yrs. The only things I change are: reduce oil to 1 cup; & add 1/2 tsp. nutmeg & 1/4 tsp. cloves to the flour mixture. We frequently enjoy this for breakfast on Sundays."

"This cake was awesome!!! My brother ate 3 pieces. My family rated this cake very high. Yes indeed it was EXTREMELY stiff. It did have a lot of oil but next time I will try using 1/2 of the oil and 1/2 applesauce. The recipe didn't indicate what kind of apples, so I used Granny Smith. I recommend this cake to all!!"

"This is a good recipe, and I absolutely love the sauce! I made it for a class of 30 adults, and I got many compliments and two recipe requests. The sauce is probably the best part! Three tips: The sauce as it was cooling kept wanting to separate, but as long as I stirred it every now and then as it was cooling the sauce came out perfect. Secondly, for those that might think that 1 and 1/2 cups oil is alot, try substituting half of that with applesauce. It will make a less oily, more moist and flavorful cake. And lastly, the recipe says that the batter will be stiff and that was totally an understatement! But resist the temptation to add some liquid and follow the recipe. The cake will turn out fine. Will definitely make this again!"
