We laugh about the title, Mom got the recipe the day before the contest from a dear friend. There were no hard feelings!

This is one of my favorite recipes ever. I ate an obscene amount of this cake as it was way too good. I never heard of sour milk other than milk gone bad in the fridge so I googled it: 1- Place 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice or distilled white vinegar in a glass measuring cup. 2- Add in milk (2% or richer) to equal 1 cup. Stir. 3- Let stand for 15 minutes until it looks like its beginning to curdle or slightly curdled. Worked like a charm! I didn't peel my apples either because most of the nutrients sit under the skin of fruits so if I'm going to eat something not so good for me it may as well have some nutritional value...lol. Mostly though I'm lazy. Tasted great peels and all. Read More

This was very good but we didn't love it. I made it as written. It's quite sweet; I would prefer more apple or spice flavour rather than 'sweet'. Because it was tender & moist I might try it again with more spices maybe as muffins. I should add I did have 2 requests for the recipe. Read More

Wonderful and tasty cake. It has the moist consistency of a carrotcake with crispy nut and sugar top. Read More

It was very good! My husband loved it. I did make 2 changes: first of all it did need a little more baking. I baked it for about 10 more minutes on convection and secondly I sprayed it with a little margarine spray during those last 10 minutes of baking. I will definitely make this again! Read More

VERY yummy! I had some sour milk that I wanted to use so I thought I'd try this recipe. Very easy. I made a double batch & took it to work. They gobbled up every bit of it! Another nice thing about it was I had everything on hand already... didn't have to go out & buy anything new! I think I might try it as muffins next time. Hmm... Read More
