Marie's Yummy Apple Cake

Marie Ward


This started out to be a Betty Crocker recipe, but I have changed it so much that it now belongs to me. Thus the name change! You will love it! I think the combination of sour cream, spiced applesauce and the oil make this cake so moist and yummy! Useing two different type apples also contributes to the yummy taste. Your search ends here for the perfect apple cake!
