FAQ For Apple Cake

Can I use oil instead of butter?

You can although the flavor will have a subtle taste difference since the butter used is salted. If you opt to use the oil I would also add a 1/4 tsp of salt as well.

What type of pan do I need to bake it in?

A standard class or metal loaf pan will do perfectly.
