"This dense, spiced bread with an apple-streusel topping can be made in a loaf pan, muffin tins, or springform pan. Yum!"

  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9 inch springform pan. Sprinkle sugar in the pan to coat. Whisk together 2 cups of flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg in a bowl.
  2. Beat 1/2 cup butter and 1 cup white sugar with an electric mixer in a large bowl until light and fluffy. The mixture should be noticeably lighter in color. Add the room-temperature eggs one at a time, allowing each egg to blend into the butter mixture before adding the next. Beat in the vanilla with the last egg. Mix in the flour mixture until just incorporated. Spread into prepared pan.
  3. Top the cake with the sliced apples, arranged in an overlapping spiral pattern. In a small bowl, blend 2 tablespoons flour, brown sugar, and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, and butter with fork until crumbly. Sprinkle over the apples.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 1 hour. Cool in the pans for 10 minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire rack.

I loved this recipe, but it needs 3/4 cup of milk and the batter was still thick. I flipped the recipe and put 3 TBSP of melted butter into a 9x9 pan and sprinkled in 1/3 cup of brown sugar and ...

Very delicious! I also had to add milk, because I'm not a big fan of dense cake, and this had cookie dough consistency before adding milk. I also minced the apples and mixed them in instead so I...

wonderful recipe! Very tasty! I had to add about 3/4 cup of milk. Will make again!

As others suggested, I split the sugar between white and brown. I added about 2/3 cup walnuts. I grated half the apples I put in, but they were looking like applesauce so I decided just to dic...

I made a few minor changes after reading the reviews. I used Ari's suggestions for flipping the cake, 2 tbl butter melted and poured into a spring form pan, sprinkle 1/2 c brown sugar and 1 tsp ...
