This is a wonderfully different sort of cake. My great grandma made this when I was a kid, when she lost her mind to alzheimer's disease the recipe went with her. The only thing I can say is that I think there may have been a typo on the baking time. I baked this for an hour instead of thirty minutes and it came out great. Due to the oil content of the cake the toothpick came out clean even though it was not all the way done. Also, I remember when my grandma made this she poked holes in the cake for the topping to seep into the cake which I think makes it all the more better.

This cake is delicous, especially for fall. I cut the oil in it! I sub'd 3/4 cup apple sauce and 1/4 cup oil for the 1 1/2 cups oil it asked for. The cake was perfect!!!

I haven't made the recipe yet, but a friend did and it was fabulous. Hint: My friend made the cake the night before and it seemed to moist and runny so got up in the morning and cooked it a while longer and it was great.
