I made this cake 2 days ago for my husband and he loved it! I did, however, make a few adjustments to the basic recipe. I used 1 cup brown sugar and 1 cup of white sugar and used a 1/8 tea. of allspice as well. I also add 3-4 tablespoons of milk as I added the dry ingredients to the sugar and butter mixture. As we speak, I am making another cake to take to xmas party.

I followed this recipe exactly with the exception of adding a little extra apple to make sure it was moist enough, and it was the dry and crumbly! Tasted alright, but will not make again. Don't like dry cake.

Oh my goodness! A great cake. When I read the recipe I was looking forward to having it for dessert and for breakfast. It didn't come close to making it for breakfast! It was all gone within seconds. I loved it and I don't care for baked apple anything. Really good flavor and easy to make. I'll be making thing anytime I need to impress. The only thing I did was drizzle a glaze (powdered sugar, milk, vanilla) on top for a little sweetness and to make it look nice.

I made this recipe with apples that were on the road to becoming bad and margarine. It was SO delicious and moist. It was very easy to make and tasted great.

I loved this cake!! The only changes that I made were I cut the apples into small cubes and put some lemon juice on them. I also put in 4 cups not 3. The batter looked like it was too dry, but all the juice from the apples came out and it was awesome. It took my oven an hour and 15 mins.

Really good cake. The only thing I changed was I diced up the apples instead of slicing them. I made a glaze of cinnamon, water, vanilla and powdered sugar for the cake. Yummy!

I made this cake druing Christmas and thought that i made a mess of it because it stuck in the pan and half broke. I peiced the two togehter but basically planned to not put it out. Family saw it in the kitchen and one by one tasted it until it was all gone. I was asked to make another for New years.

Didn't change a thing and LOVED this cake. Took it to work and got nothing but praise. Very moist and, though I considered using a topping, it didn't need a glaze or frosting...perfect just the way it's written. This is now an Autumn favorite! Thanks!
