thinly sliced apples
2 (3 ounce) packages
cream cheese, softened
I LOVE this recipe. I've made it many times. The first time I made it, I bought the ingredients to make the cream cheese topping and then decided not to. When the cake cooled, I just turned it out upsidedown on a platter and sprinkled it with confectioner's sugar instead. It was beautiful, delicious and LESS FATTENING.
Is this cake supposed to have a very thick crunchy crust? The middle was nice and moist and very good but my husband hated how crispy the outside was and I didn't like it much myself.
Both of my grandmothers use to make this cake when I was a child. One grandmother used vanilla and the other used lemon in the icing.This cake has always been a family favorite. Remember the batter is very thick before you put it in the pan so don't be alarmed.
this cake is awesome...orginal cake....and the 3 eggs makes it more tender...
This cake used to be on the menu at a restaurant I worked at. I reduced the sugar and oil with no ill effects in the cake. It was excellent. I will have to compare it with the original recipe when I unpack, I think it had more cinnamon. The crust softens after a day or two in the fridge. I prefer it after the crust has softened and the flavors meld.
I have made this recipe for years. Everyone loves it. I got this recipe in a recipe collection called "My great recipes" that I ordered from a cookbook. Everyone asks me to make this cake. I love it warm.
WOW! I love this recipe! We only eat granny smith apples and I ended up with a bag that weren't, so I was looking for a recipe to use these up and this just what I was looking for. On the sweet side, but man it hits the spot. Thanks for sharing!
A good, if somewhat ordinary, cake with a nice moist texture. Like similar cakes, I think it tastes better after it sits for a day. Not wanting to spend for 2 pkgs of cream cheese, I halved the frosting-- but it's the best part! This would be a good choice if you don't want a really sweet cake and you like to taste walnuts.
