1 1/2 cups
apple - peeled, cored, and chopped
sifted confectioners' sugar
Really nice recipe! I added extra apples like some reviewers before me. I also added chopped almonds and almond extract which I HIGHLY reccomend! Very tasty! My only complaint was that once I got the icing on there, the combination was a little too sweet for me. I think I would cut back on the sugar in the cake it's self, as the icing was really yummy. I will deffinetly make this again. Thanks for sharing this recipe! :)
Well....I don't see what the big "tado" is about this cake! I've had numerous apple cakes that would put this one to shame. The nutmeg was way TOO much...and honestly I thought the cake was quite bland. I tasted it before I made the frosting, and decided not to waste the ingredients. Sorry!
This is fabulous. I made it as directed except I used slightly more than 2 cups of apples, I added some ground cloves, too, and I did not make the frosting. I don't think the cake needs it, and it would probably be too sweet for us. Instead, I made a cinnamon sugar mixture and sprinkled it on the cake before baking--it made a great crispy topping. The cake itself has a very light texture. Great recipe!
Great cake, great frosting. The cake is moist without being soggy or oil-saturated. Pleasantly autumn spiced with nice chunks of sweet apple (I used apples from our tree and I haven't a clue what they are - all I know is that they are sweet and hold their shape). The frosting was gorgeous. I generally have no problem using shortening in frostings, particularly if I need it to be pure white, but in this case I felt this frosting begged for butter. Since there was already a fair amount of nutmeg in the cake, I used apple pie spice instead of nutmeg in the frosting, as I'm not a fan of too much nutmeg. I beat the frosting a good long time, which made it luxuriously fluffy and smooth. Once frosted, I sprinkled it all over with freshly ground cinnamon/sugar.
This is a cake that will impress ! Lovely taste, with an amazing topping. Keeps well in the fridge. For non spice lovers try omitting the use of nutmeg, and using real vanilla in the frosting (insted of cinnamon and nutmeg).
Loved this cake (and don't omit the frosting!). I mistakenly peeled too many apples, so I actually had 4 cups of chopped fruit. I baked in the 9x9 inch pan, but the additional fruit required me to bake this almost 60 minutes before the toothpick came out clean. Next time, I'll still double the fruit, but I'll bake in a 9 x 13 pan. DELISH!
This was really dense and moist and so tasty. I used 3 big apples in the cake and used fresh grated nutmeg and it tasted really spicy. For the icing I just used a nutmeg/cinnamon/powdered sugar and milk mixture instead of the thicker frosting, and it tasted really good anyways.
We really enjoyed this cake. We didn't think the frosting was necessary (we did try it & it was good). I'd serve it plain with some whipped cream on the side. A keeper.
