I took the advice favoring putting only part of the sugar with the apples. I put a half of cup and the rest I mixed with the eggs and vanilla. The cake was great. It was light moist and flavorful. I sprinkled it with confectionary sugar. Would definitely recommend it. Read More

what a complete mess. i should have suspected from the directions that it didn't make sense to put all the sugar with the apples. needed some of the sugar to beat with the eggs and oil. a complete flop the cake is caved in all around the bundt pan and what a waste of ingredients. Read More

I absolutely love this recipe. I made it first for Christmas dinner. I made up an easy little icing of cream cheese apples and walnuts along with powdered sugar and a splash of milk. My 2 brothers said it was the best cake ever. In fact my sister and I always have a "competition" and I was crowned champ:). This past weekend I made the cake again along with my icing for some family that was visiting - we actually had it while it was still warm and the icing was gooey - OH MY GOSH - it was delish.

In 50 years of baking. I think the problem is in the way it is put together with all the sugar being added to the apples and not the batter first. Read More

My Apple Walnut Cake turned out a beautiful moist and flavorsome cake. However I did take some readers' advice and beat half the sugar with the eggs and oil and combined the other half with the apples. Also I reduced the quantity of sugar from 2 cups to 1 1/2 cups but that i guess is a matter of personal taste. All in all a great recipe and a scrumptious cake. Read More
