eggs, room temperature
1 1/2 teaspoons
apples - peeled, cored and thinly sliced
The flavor of this is really great, with the perfect balance of spices, but it turned out a bit dry for our taste. Followed the recipe exactly, and next time I will add a touch of milk, sour cream, or buttermilk to moisten up the cake batter. Be warned that when it says "spread" into the pan, it means it. This is a really dense cake batter. Will make again with minor changes.
This is my recipe but changes have been made that make it more tedious than necessary. Simply mix the cake ingredients together until combined. No need for all the extra hassle; this recipe is forgiving. More dense than a coffee cake but just as delicious. Enjoy!
Very delicious! I also had to add milk, because I'm not a big fan of dense cake, and this had cookie dough consistency before adding milk. I also minced the apples and mixed them in instead so I could top the cake with a cinnamon coffee frosting (I love frosting!). Even my picky 6 year old loved it.
I loved this recipe, but it needs 3/4 cup of milk and the batter was still thick. I flipped the recipe and put 3 TBSP of melted butter into a 9x9 pan and sprinkled in 1/3 cup of brown sugar and 1 tsp of cinnamon then place in the sliced apples and place the batter over the top. After it bakes, flip the cake out of the pan so the cake is upside down. I mixed 2 cups of powdered sugar and 2 TBSP of milk and lightly drizzled the cake while still warm with the glaze.
wonderful recipe! Very tasty! I had to add about 3/4 cup of milk. Will make again!
As others suggested, I split the sugar between white and brown. I added about 2/3 cup walnuts. I grated half the apples I put in, but they were looking like applesauce so I decided just to dice the rest. It was delish, but I had a very hard time getting it out of the pan.
I made a few minor changes after reading the reviews. I used Ari's suggestions for flipping the cake, 2 tbl butter melted and poured into a spring form pan, sprinkle 1/2 c brown sugar and 1 tsp cinnamon over melted butter, place sliced apples in a spiral over cinnamon sugar mixture. I added the remaining apples, chopped small, to the batter (to which I also included 1/2 cup milk). Delicious recipe for early Fall and a great use for all those apples!
