PERFECT cake for a fall day!, Member krondeau

I made this cake recipe almost exactly as written, but I only used 1 cup of oil and 1 cup of sugar (3/4 brown, 1/4 white). The cake came out delicious. I have another one in the oven today -- with 3/4 cup oil and 3/4 cup sugar...I am sure it will be just as delicious.
