Yum-eee. I switched this up a bit by reducing the sugars to 1C br. sugar and 1/2C white sugar (as I was going to add a glaze to the finished cake), replacing 1C of the flour with whole wheat flour and adding 1/4 tsp cardamom along with the cinnamon. And as dense as the batter was, it baked evenly and was done at 35 min (in a glass pan). Then, to gild the lily, I poured Caramel Frosting VI on top. Moist, apple-y... just plain delicious. Thanks!

Well...this has potential but it's not there yet. It was soggy towards the bottom of the pan. I would recommend decreasing the amount of apples and making them as small as possible - maybe it will decrease the amount of moisture. Just a note - this is almost the exact recipe I use for carrot cake from allrecipes.com and that is an amazing cake! Read More

I've been making this cake for years. I love this cake and so does eveyone that tries it. I use half the amount of nuts (we dont care too much for nuts), but I add that same amount of raisins (we like the chewyness it gives). To top it off I brush a little melted margarine to the top of the cake and then sprinkle it with cinnamon and sugar. Perfect! It's more like a coffee cake to me so it's perfect for breakfast.

Awesome apple cake! I omitted the nuts due to personal taste. I used four McIntosh apples with a fairly fine chop to obtain the desired four cups. In addition to the cinnamon I added sprinkles of nutmeg cloves and pumpkin pie spice. The resultant cake was a beautful dark brown with a crackled appearance. The cake is beautifully moist and rich with a spicy apple-y flavor. Great with Caramel Frosting VI from this site. Read More

This was excellent. The batter is very thick. Will try with 1/2 cup less sugar next time. I grated the apples. Used the caramel glaze from Fresh Apple Cake III. Read More
