We love this cake! Followed the recipe as written, but used a 9x13 pan, and baked at 350. Topped it with a simple brown sugar glaze. The batter seems very dry at first, but when it cooks, the moisture from the apples makes it perfect.
The batter was dry. I thought there was a wet ingredient missing. I would advice that you mix all the wet together first and then combine. The end procuct was delicious and moist. Very tasty.
This is an outstanding apple cake. I have taken it to several affairs and everyone wants the recipe. It is so fast also. My son and daughter have also taken it to church and school events and received many compliments. As parents of young children they have little time for baking and appreciate how fast this recipe is.
This cake was not good to me, something was missing; substance. It tasted gooey. Too many apples and cinanmon for my taste buds. Try my recipe for comparison.

This is a great recipe - all the flavors of fall. Wonderful with a little whipped cream on top. I used an 8"x8" pan (smaller than the pan called for in the recipe), but everything fit - it just needed a slightly longer baking time. I used pecans, instead of walnuts, decreased the oil to 1/4 cup, and added 1/2 cup of applesauce. It was wonderful - really dense and moist, just like a recipe my mother used to make.
This recipe was pretty good. My husband, not a huge sweets fan, really liked this one. I did make changes, however, so I'm not sure how true the 5 stars are. Rather than refined sugar, I used Turbinado (that's all I use), and rather than vanilla, I used honey (it's all I had!). I chopped up a batch of apples given to me by my neighbors, so I have no idea which type they were, using a baby food maker. This works great b/c you can basically do it in one-cup increments and adjust to your taste. I did have to cook it a bit longer than the recipe calls for (using all 5 1/2 cups of apple, I cooked in a 9x9 for 55 minutes @ 325)but it turned out great. It's dense and *very* moist, like a wet sponge. But the flavor's great, and the kids loved it!
This was the best apple cake i have ever had. Everyone loved it and still is talking about it. I did not change a thing it's perfect the way it is.
I have been making this cake 2-3 times a month over the past year. I've passed it on to other people who love it as much as I do. Excellent for breakfast or coffee break.
