very similar to a recipe we have had for years...only difference is oil in yours and shortening in ours..and no sauce...
does the top get all crinkly??????? our recipe does...and it's so tasty....but you MUST wait that 10-15 minutes before placing in oven.....
editing: your recipe might now get crinkly on top as I read it's made in a bundt pan...and our recipe in a 13 X 9
It's not how you start, it's how you end....so end strong!!
Walk yourself strong!!
Thanks Foodguy. Sisters coming for visit for 4 days and this sounds perfect with the caramel sauce of course. Sounds quick and easy.
My pleasure....I hope that you enjoy it,....and the visit with your sister.
Looks wonderful. Thanks for sharing!

Thank you so much!! It sounds exactly like a cake my late cousin used to make and I never did get the recipe. Guess what I am going to make tomorrow???
Time is too slow for those who wait, too swift for those who fear, too long for those who grieve, too short for those who rejoice, but for those who love...Time is ETERNITY.
This Recipe looks YUMMY and simple enough that even I can make. Is there a certain type of apple to use with this?? Maybe one kind better than the other? I don't believe I have that type of pan...if I were to bake it in a 13x9, would the bake time be the same you think?
My Mom used to make this cake, and she served it with hot praline sauce --- sooooooooooooo good!

I was thinking about making this to take to work. Could I pour the caramel sauce over the cake to be like an icing?
Gee, Tree, I honestly don't know-we always spooned it over individual slices. Many times Mom would serve it with dollops of Cool Whip or Whipped Cream.
I figure it can't hurt to try! :)
Did you see Lilmouthy's questions above?
This is a great recipe! We like tart apples in it, like fresh MacIntosh, as the cake is fairly sweet.
A 9x13 pan needs less bake time than in a thicker tube/bundt pan. I'd try about 40 min. & check how it's doing.
Freezes great & good without a sauce too.
