I made this exactly according to the recipe except I added not quite a T of cinnamon instead of a t. It came out perfectly. I thought it might be too wet due to the amount of apples but it has a nice moistness. It's fairly quick to make, especially because I use my KitchenAid apple peeler/slicer attachment to do the apples, then chop them. I served it with whipped cream only, no caramel sauce as I don't like that much extra sugar and the cake is plenty sweet enough on its own. It was a big hit with all of us, including the picky 6 year old who "doesn't like apples". He like these apples! Read More
