"I store my cake in a plastic cake carrier turned upside down. The icing will run off, therefore a regular cake plate will not work unless you have one with high sides. This cake is much better the day after. It is so very moist. It is even better if you put your slice in the microwave for 10 seconds to just have it warm. My family would disown me if I did not have this cake for holiday get-togethers. Nothing better with a cup of coffee."

This was a hit! I regularly make dessert for a friend's card club and after at least two years of baking for them, this was their favorite. The cake was moist and flavorful but the icing is truly what separates this from all other apple cakes. Almost like German Chocolate cake icing without the pecans and coconut. I followed the directions except I always add a little extra vanilla. Firm Golden delicious apples were used. Highly recommend!
Got a Bundt pan for my birthday and decided to try it out. Chose this cake due to simple ingredients. I made a few changes to the recipe but it still came out wonderful. I did not have pecans, so I used cashews-added wonderful flavor. I did not have allspice or cloves so i just added extra cinnamon and nutmeg-came out great. I didn't have buttermilk, so I used whole milk with a tablespoon of white vinegar. I didn't have baking soda so I used powder and it worked out. I used applesauce instead of the oil. I also added maple whiskey to the icing because someone mentioned that the icing was bland, and that came out excellent. I also used only white sugar throughout. Cake came out perfect, moist, flavorful, with delectable little apple chunks in every bite even with all my meddling. My husband took some to work and it was all gone in the first half of the day. I will definitely make this again if i have some spare apples laying around.
I've made this recipe twice exactly as printed and our family had the same reaction twice. The cake was okay (nothing special), but the "frosting" was awful. It kind of tasted like diluted sweetened paste. I've deleted this one from my recipe box.
We love this version of fresh apple cake. I didn't change a thing! That is until I poured a quarter cup of bourbon in the leftover half just as an experiment. Awesome! It is more crumbly that way, but this recipe makes an awesome whiskey cake. Just sayin'
I made this cake for Thanksgiving this year. I'm a beginner baker but this was easy and turned out great. Moist and the icing was really good. I didn't have any allspice so I just added more cinnamon and nutmeg.
