Apple Ugly Cake
July 22, 2007

This cake is delicious. I would not call it ugly, but maybe "Apple Unadorned Cake" would be a better name. It could use a strudel or a glaze to "pretty" it up, but it tastes fabulous without. I too added the one cup of milk - I wonder if the cake would be uglier if baked without it? The batter was just WAY too dry, and I couldn't bring myself to cut up all those apples for a dry, lumpy cake. My husband said this one tasted like a quick bread, and wanted to either put butter or cream cheese frosting on it. I'm bringing it to a brunch tomorrow, but we sampled a piece each, and we agree - this one's a keeper. Thanks! Edited to add: I made this the first two times with canola oil, and it was fabulous. When I made it with veggie oil, it had a really strong "oil" taste to it - I ended up throwing a lot of it away.
