This is one of my favorite recipes ever. I ate an obscene amount of this cake as it was way too good. I never heard of sour milk, other than milk gone bad in the fridge, so I googled it: 1- Place 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice or distilled white vinegar in a glass measuring cup. 2- Add in milk (2% or richer) to equal 1 cup. Stir. 3- Let stand for 15 minutes until it looks like its beginning to curdle or slightly curdled. Worked like a charm! I didn't peel my apples either because most of the nutrients sit under the skin of fruits, so if I'm going to eat something not so good for me, it may as well have some nutritional Mostly though, I'm lazy. Tasted great peels and all.

the cake had very little flavor. 3 stars warm out of the oven, but not good the next day

This was very good, but we didn't love it. I made it as written. It's quite sweet; I would prefer more apple or spice flavour, rather than 'sweet'. Because it was tender & moist, I might try it again with more spices, maybe as muffins. I should add, I did have 2 requests for the recipe.

Wonderful and tasty cake. It has the moist consistency of a carrotcake, with crispy nut and sugar top.

Absolutely Wonderful... I have made it 3 times this month for sharing....

It was very good! My husband loved it. I did make 2 changes: first of all, it did need a little more baking. I baked it for about 10 more minutes on convection and secondly, I sprayed it with a little margarine spray during those last 10 minutes of baking. I will definitely make this again!

VERY yummy! I had some sour milk that I wanted to use, so I thought I'd try this recipe. Very easy. I made a double batch & took it to work. They gobbled up every bit of it! Another nice thing about it was I had everything on hand already... didn't have to go out & buy anything new! I think I might try it as muffins next time. Hmm...
