This cake is a little like apple pie, only the pastry is made out of a yeasted dough. It's simple to make and utterly delicious. Enjoy with cream, ice cream or custard.
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. - 07 Jan 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
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 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... - 05 Feb 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Laurel (reviewer) must have been reviewing another recipe because there is neither oil nor applesauce in this recipe. - 27 Feb 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
