Recipe by GA Hole In 1 GAL
"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!
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.
