Don't let the name of this recipe fool you. It may not be the prettiest cake you've ever seen, but it sure is the delicious! I've made this for a tea party, office luncheon, brunch and dessert. It's always a hit. Delicious served with vanilla ice cream.

I've made this cake three times. Twice as directed and once adding 1 cup milk as others have suggested. The milk changed the consistency of the cake. Although it was good it's much better without adding milk. Try it as directed you won't be disappointed.

I make this cake often, exactly as it is here. It is delicious. I get tons of compliments, so thanks whoever posted this! The apples have so much water in them that it cooks out into the batter and makes something I can only describe as an apple spice cake with the moisture of a brownie. My friend HATES cake but he loves this.

This cake is delicious. I would not call it ugly, but maybe "Apple Unadorned Cake" would be a better name. It could use a strudel or a glaze to "pretty" it up, but it tastes fabulous without. I too added the one cup of milk - I wonder if the cake would be uglier if baked without it? The batter was just WAY too dry, and I couldn't bring myself to cut up all those apples for a dry, lumpy cake. My husband said this one tasted like a quick bread, and wanted to either put butter or cream cheese frosting on it. I'm bringing it to a brunch tomorrow, but we sampled a piece each, and we agree - this one's a keeper. Thanks! Edited to add: I made this the first two times with canola oil, and it was fabulous. When I made it with veggie oil, it had a really strong "oil" taste to it - I ended up throwing a lot of it away.
