I baked this for a meeting. Everyone really liked it alot. I did however have to apply baking experience know- how to come out with a great tasting product that looks just as appetizing. I cut cinnamon in half. Beat in eggs one at a time alternate dry ingred. with the milk. Take the time to spread batter even and to all corners of pan---spoon apple little by little over batter then spread even with a spatula. Crumble b. sugar with clean hands slowly over cake and spoon (i used baby spoon) butter over the topping. Great!!! A keepee. Read More

2 cans of pie filling as others suggested would kill this recipe almost for sure...I would do what I did and just slice up 2 extra apples.That made it perfect along with a splash of vanilla to the batter...I thought this was totally sinful-like pie topped cake-very good!!!Will make again for sure-way to go AUNT DEE.

This cake is very good. I have also used peach pie filling instead of the apple pie filling and it came out just as well.You don't have to go thru peeling apples or peaches. Read More

My entire family of five loved the coffee cake. I found the recipe easy to follow. What I really like about this cake is that it smells wonderful and isn't overly sweet. I made this for my son's 8th grade bake sale. It was still warm when I brought it in. It was gone in an instant. Read More

This is a "keeper"! The only thing I added was 1 teaspoon of vanilla to the batter. I also used a potato masher to break up the apples to make it easier to disperse. I had rave review from the family and my co-workers. Read More

Living in Sweden I couldn't buy pie filling so I made homemade stuff. The cake itself was very boring it definately needs an extra kick of something. maybe cinnamon vanilla or both. It looked very appealing though although my friends decided that it needed Vanilla Sauce. I'm not sure if I will try altering this recipe or look for a new one... Read More
