Reviews for Apple Butterscotch Cake
"I love this recipe. I exchanged the oil for unsweetened applesauce, exchanged the eggs for 1/2 c. of better than eggs and omitted the nuts. It turned out great. I agree from another review that it is sweet. So next time I will cut the sugar back to 3/4 cup. This cake is moist and flavorful."
"Didn't like it that much. Way to sweet."
"This cake is wonderful. I would just like a "lighter" version of it. It is so moist and delicious. Everyone who tried it said it is definitely a "keeper"."
