This slightly spicy cake is better if you use butter and it's delicious warmed up the next morning.

I made this cake 2 days ago for my husband and he loved it! I did, however, make a few adjustments to the basic recipe. I used 1 cup brown sugar and 1 cup of white sugar and used a 1/8 tea. of allspice as well. I also add 3-4 tablespoons of milk as I added the dry ingredients to the sugar and butter mixture. As we speak, I am making another cake to take to xmas party. Read More

I followed this recipe exactly with the exception of adding a little extra apple to make sure it was moist enough and it was the dry and crumbly! Tasted alright but will not make again. Don't like dry cake. Read More

Oh my goodness! A great cake. When I read the recipe I was looking forward to having it for dessert and for breakfast. It didn't come close to making it for breakfast! It was all gone within seconds. I loved it and I don't care for baked apple anything. Really good flavor and easy to make. I'll be making thing anytime I need to impress. The only thing I did was drizzle a glaze (powdered sugar, milk, vanilla) on top for a little sweetness and to make it look nice. Read More

I made this recipe with apples that were on the road to becoming bad and margarine. It was SO delicious and moist. It was very easy to make and tasted great. Read More

I loved this cake!! The only changes that I made were I cut the apples into small cubes and put some lemon juice on them. I also put in 4 cups not 3. The batter looked like it was too dry but all the juice from the apples came out and it was awesome. It took my oven an hour and 15 mins. Read More

Really good cake. The only thing I changed was I diced up the apples instead of slicing them. I made a glaze of cinnamon water vanilla and powdered sugar for the cake. Yummy! Read More

I made this cake druing Christmas and thought that i made a mess of it because it stuck in the pan and half broke. I peiced the two togehter but basically planned to not put it out. Family saw it in the kitchen and one by one tasted it until it was all gone. I was asked to make another for New years. Read More

Didn't change a thing and LOVED this cake. Took it to work and got nothing but praise. Very moist and though I considered using a topping it didn't need a glaze or frosting...perfect just the way it's written. This is now an Autumn favorite! Thanks! Read More

This cake was a complete HIT with everyone who tried it! The only thing I changed was I used two whole apples chopped (not sliced) and I used a Pampered Chef Cinnamon Plus Spice Blend instead of the two dry spices in the original recipe. The batter was VERY thick. I added just a splash of half and half (that's the only dairy I had) just to get it combined well. I cooked it in a bundt pan and it turned out perfect! Read More
