Moist Apple Cake Recipe

Publisher Photo
This appetizing apple cinnamon cake, draped with a warm brown sugar sauce, is a crowd-pleaser at parties or at the office, confirms Lisa Miller from West Chester, Ohio. "I adapted a friend's recipe by decreasing the oil and substituting applesauce," she notes. "I also switched to fat-free milk...but no one will ever guess this treat is light."

"I made this great recipe for my Christian Womanhood tea today!! It was first sampled by my husband and son warm from oven - they both thought it was the "best dessert they had ever had". Huge success with the girls. It was easy to make and absolutely delicious! Thank you!!!"

"I just made this tonight, and had to leave a comment! It's so good! The caramel sauce is a great addition to an already moist and delicious cake! I'll definitely make this again! Best of all, it uses far less oil than traditional apple cake recipes."
