This was so good. I didn't have a tube pan so I used a 9x13 inch pan and reduced the cooking time. My husband took the rest to work and it was gone in no time.

The Apple Dapple Cake is a cake my aunt ue to make when I was growing and I miss her so I found this recipe and made it. It was dry and pretty much tasteless and I was sceptical about baking it for 90 minutes.

I added 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon, 3/4 teaspoons ground cloves and 3/4 teaspoons ground allspice. I also sprinkled additional walnuts on top before baking. Awesome!

I used 3 1/2 cups chopped apples which I covered with 1/4 cup sugar and cinnamon and sprinkled 2 tablespoons of lemon juice over it before I mixed it in the batter. I also used a 9 x 13 glass pan to cook it in, took only about 60 min. We really liked this far 7 out of 7 people liked it!!! Great recipe!

Earlier this morning, I made this cake and am most impressed with how delicious it is, not to even mention how moist. It's a wonderful cake which I'd recommend to anyone. Thanks for sharing this with us IreneD.

This recipe was awesome. A friend of mine at work who is older than me told me that her mother used to make an Apple Dapple Cake years ago and they are delicious. I actually used about 3 cups of chopped apples and seasoned them with nutmeg, cinnamon and white sugar and let them sit for about 20 mintues. The cake is BANGING (Good).

This is a wonderful recipe! My grandmother used to make something like this. I omit the raisins and the nuts and put a confectioner's glaze on top. Good Stuff. I was so happy to find this after searching for four years.
