Apple Sour Cream Streusel Cake
Now, I’m not too sure about the scientifics of baking… I read the couple of reviews that mentioned the cake having been dry. The first time I made this cake, I followed the recipe exactly, and the cake came out -- delicious. I considered it to be more… “heavy” than “dry.” The second time, there were a lot of differences: I was a bit reckless. I forgot the salt and the jelly, and I dumped all the ingredients into one bowl and stirred really hard. I was using two 8x8 inch pans, so I increased the recipe (in my head) by ¼ and went with the flow. I used three apples. (As I said, I forgot the jelly entirely. Oops.) -- The 8x8 pans were so shallow that the lack of jelly -- was no problem at all. In addition to my modifications, in order to make it “less dry” -- I added about… a ¼ cup of milk. Recklessness, indeed! I wasn’t sure exactly how it would come out… or if that was breaking an age old baking rule -- etc etc. The results. Were. Amazing. I have never eaten a better cake. I think I am accidentally going to have eaten one entire 8x8 pan of this cake by the time tomorrow is over. My grandmother, aunt, & three cousins loved it as well. So yes, as a suggestion: I would suggest -- adding ¼ cup milk. There were about three pieces that were eaten before the cake had a chance to sit -- for even 10 minutes, and this might seem obvious, but the texture was a thousand times better a few hours later. (I’m eating a huge piece, taking bites inbetween sentences. Mmm!)
