A nice easy cake to make. As I always do I only used 1/2 the sugar called for in the cake. And to give it extra apple flavour I used homemade applesauce instead of oil. And for added nutrients I used 1 cup of wheat flour. It is a winner. I'll definately make this cake again! Read More

I made this recipe and it turned out to dry. So I cut the oil in half and replaced it with butter and added raisins cinnamon nutmeg and ginger to the batter I also soaked the apples in the orange juice to keep everything moist. Made is much better. Read More

I did not think this coffee cake lived up to the positive reviews at all. I found it to be bland and very heavy. Read More

This is a very simple recipe and if you have some apples you want to use then this is perfect. I halved the recipe and it worked just fine. Read More
