    to save time, I used a spice cake mix and just added the mayo, milk, apples, nuts, and raisins. Yummy!!  -  21 Feb 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I've been making this cake with consistently excellent results for over 25 years. I make a homemade buttercream frosting that I frost similarly to a german chocolate cake - just between the layers and on top, not the sides. It the most requested cake for family get togethers.  -  09 Aug 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Ran out of milk; just used water and it was still moist. I put a caramel frosting on it instead of the cream...yummy. So easy; like the "dump" cakes.  -  07 Jul 2001  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
