Super moist and super delicious. I would recommend this recipe to anyone.
I made this for a New Year's dinner party - it looked pretty made in a bundt pan , unmolded and dusted with powdered sugar. I also made a raspberry sauce and whipped cream to serve with it. This dessert is not very sweet - something I like but may disappoint some. You could compensate by making the raspberry sauce and/or the whipped cream sweeter than you normally would.
This was suprisingly good. I baked this in an 11x7 snowflake cake pan. It took close to 1 1/2 hours to cook through. The cake is sticky to the touch so be careful when transferring to a cake pan. I served with on Christmas with Brandy Butter found on this site.
Did this for a Christmas party I had with my friends last year. A guy friend liked it so much he thought my boyfriend was one lucky guy to have a girlfriend that churns out such nice food! Added some liquor to the recipe.
Loved it. This reminded me of a cake my grandmother would have baked. It was good the first day, but it got better over time.
This was very good. Next I will add some chocolate chips to make it a bit more decadent. This a easy cake to make and is very moist, best of all everyone loved it.
Excellent! Odd ingredients but GREAT results. The final texture is moist and heavy-yum...
This was okay. I made it for a Christmas dessert. Everyone passed on the leftovers. It was a disappointment.
Good with the brandy butter sauce, but not sweet enough to eat for dessert by itself.
I used 2 1/2 cups of pureed frozen plums soaked in 2 oz of spiced rum (instead of apple saucce & raisins). I did not have nutmeg, so I used ground ginger instead. Also omitted walnuts.
This is a very moist cake. It is very easy to make and tastes fantastic!
Nice and moist like a steamed pudding without the steaming. This was hit at all of the holiday parties that I've been to so far this season. It goes well with hard sauce but is also good on its own.
I'm on the fence with this cake; didn't love it, didn't hate it. Some of my friends thought there was too much cinnamon (it didn't bother me) & another thought it would be better if the raisins were chopped to give it a smoother texture. I enjoyed it once, but probably won't make it again.
LOVE THIS! Made it for a birthday cake with a brandy fruit sauce...mmmm!!! Moist and rich but not too sweet. I love the idea of adding chocolate chips!
I baked this cake for a New Years celebration with my in-laws. Everyone loved it! My husband is allergic to nuts, so I left out the walnuts, but everyone loved it! The cake was very moist and it had a unique flavor. I will definitely use this recipe again.
Like another reviewer, I had 2 c. of Italian plum puree to use, so I used that instead of the apple sauce. I also did not use whole wheat flour. I thought it turned out well enough to make it again. It was very moist and full of flavor.
