Aunt Lydia's Apple Cake7 Reviews

"This is more like a pie then a cake. The yeast crust is a very nice change. Makes a very large pan and is good for a large group. Will make again...." See more"
"I had a cup of shredded apples I needed to use up and put that in this recipe instead of the applesauce. Also, I realized later I only put half the oil in, but decided to leave it like that (they say..." See more you can substituted applesauce for half the oil in a recipe....) My husband said it was "extraordinary". Usually he says things are "fine" or "good." Hence the 5 star rating..."
