German Apple Cake I

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2014
It's important to note that this calls for far too much sugar, especially if you're planning to use a caramel sauce as some reviewers have suggested. I didn't want to use even a cup and a half of sugar, but I like to stay as close to the original recipe as possible the first time I make anything. I used a cup and a half and it was still too sweet. Next time I'll only use a cup or 3/4 cup of sugar. (And I say this as a girl who likes sugar.) Having run out of brown sugar and cream, I popped open a can of La Lechera Caramel, scooped some in a bowl, nuked it in the microwave and spread a thin layer over this cake. Mind blown! The cake itself is very yummy. But the caramel addition, with a touch of vanilla ice cream makes it incredible! Just be sure to half the sugar! This is a dessert that will def be on the table next holiday season. It's really good! I may try it with apple sauce and reduce the oil the next time I make it. Many thanks to Barbara for sharing this recipe!
