I made this cake for my friend's birthday and WOW! This is awesome. I made a large 9"x13", two layered cake. If you want a 9"x13" layered cake, double the amount of the recipe and then divide the batter between three 9"x13" pans. This way your layers will have the best thickness (my layers were too thick, I will make a 3 layer cake next time). For the frosting I whipped two cups of heavy whipping cream with 3/4 cup of confectioner sugar and 4 tbsp of cocoa liquor to my desired consistency. For the filling I peeled and chopped 10 small apples and boiled them with 1/2 cup of water and 2tbsp of sugar until it was soft and jam like. I added a zest of one lemon into this jam, coated the layers with the frosting and filled them with this filling. And for the cake, I substituted vanilla with the zest of one medium orange. I received so many wows in the party and everyone loved the cake. It took a lot of time but it is definitely worth it. Oh and two more things: add 1/4 cup more milk as other users suggested and beat every step very well. Thanks for posting this recipes SCOTTOSMAN.
