      Oh, my ma always made this recipe when I was growing up, and everyone raved about it! The only thing I do differently is leave out the nuts... sorry, I'm just not a fan, lol! Also, the frosting recipe my mom gave me uses half the amounts of cream cheese and frosting, but 2 Tbs. butter and 1 tsp. vanilla. Ahhh, this is what you call comfort food :)

      Superb cake! I had gotten almost this exact same recipe from a dear friend of mine at church. I have altered to 1/2 c. vegetable oil and 1/2 c. apple sauce. I usually don't put in pecans as my daughter doesn't like nuts. The cream cheese mixture I have is different with 4 T. butter. Yum, yum!

      What a wonderful moist and delicious cake! The only change I made was to cut the sugar to 1 1/2 cups (instead of 2), since I used Courtland apples and they're really not too tart! It took one hour to bake in my oven. The cream cheese frosting really finished it off! Thanks for sharing this great cake recipe, keen5! I'll certainly be making it often!
