Make this exactly as written and I promise you, you won't be disappointed. Use ALL the apples called for, bake about 65 minutes, and cover it the last 10 minutes or so with foil if it starts to ...

Texture was not good, fell apart taking it out and not serveable. Cake mix made it less of a true coffee cake.

This recipe was absolutely delicious! I subsituted a little. I used a yellow cake mix but used a cream cheese instant pudding. I also used apple pie filling instead of just apples and also su...

Definitely a good cake. The amount of apples called for in the recipe is excessive, though. It needs only about 4 apples, and that would be plenty. However, it is very time-consuming to prepare,...

I made this recipe with 4 sliced peaches instead of apples. I also baked it for about 45 min. in a 13x9 pan instead of a bundt pan. Delicious!

Great recipe. I use light sour cream and 1/2 cup of cinnamon applesauce (2 with 1 tablespoon oil) instead of 1/2 of vegetable oil.

The family really enjoyed this one. I made the following changes: I coarsely diced 4 granny smith apples, and mixed them, along with 1 1/2 tsp apple pie spice in with the batter. I also diced...

I would call this an apple cake, not a coffee cake. I was concerned about how thick the batter was found it difficult to layer. Next time I will chop the apples into smaller pieces, coat them i...

Very easy to make! I did cut back on the number of apples, but next time I think I'll add the full amount. Very well received by friends and family. Definitely a make-again recipe!

Very tasty for a cake that starts with a mix, and easy to make. To avoid the problem of slices falling apart, I made mine in a 9x13 pan. All ingredients are the same (although I chopped the app...
