Initially, I had reservations about this recipe. I found that the cake didn't require further baking after 45 minutes, so many thanks to all of you that posted the warnings about cooking times. The cake that emerged from the oven was visually tempting, and its cinnamon-vanilla aroma was pleasantly appealing...but when I served it up for dessert, still warm, with ice cream, it didn't go down a storm. Everyone ate it politely, and there were no overt criticisms but not a one jumped at the chance for seconds or even to take leftovers away with them. Disappointed, I was preparing to offer the remains of the cake to the birds the next morning when I popped a morsel of it in my mouth, and then immediately wondered what had happened to the one that I had baked because the bird fodder I had in hand could not possibly have been it!! It had a gorgeously moist and tender crumb and a crust that was both crisp and caramelly at the same time. So, unless the fairies stole in overnight and substituted slices of their enchanted food for my floury stodge, this cake *clearly* benefits from having a night to rest - as do we all! I shall definitely make this one again - but the next time it will be a "make-ahead" cake for brekkie or brunch.

I highly recommend this cake. It is easy and delicious. I have made this about 4 times and people always want the recipe.
I use 3 apples instead of 2. No nuts, just because I don't like them. Reduce baking time to about 1 hour.
The sauce is good but I don't always make it. When I do make it, about half the recipe is enough and it is fine without the alcohol if you don't have any on hand.
Great flavor. Very moist and delicious. I found that it took just under an hour to bake (and even then the bottom was a little overdone).
This cake is absolutely delicious. We made it for the first time for christmas breakfast, now we make it atleast once a month!
I just made this delicous cake!!!
I didn't make the sauce, but really enjoyed the cake warm with some vanilla ice cream and coffee!
I made it with wheat flour, added an extra apple and only baked it for 1 hour!
Mine turned out dry and very heavy. Now this could have definitely been user error, but I just wasn't a fan.
My sister who's 14 absolutely loved the crust, she ate everyone elses too. The rest of the family thought it was great, but I didn't like it too much myself. I thought it was a little too heavy, esp. with the brown sugar sauce. Next time I may add more apples. I cooked it for only 1hr. when the knife came out clean, and it was already slightly dry- the recipe said 1 hr.20 min..... on the whole though it was more complicated in terms of texture and taste than most coffee cakes. If my family hadn't liked it though, I doubt I'd be making it again.
