Now this is an excellent cake! This is the first cake on this site that I wish I could give more than 5 stars. My family loved it. The only change I made was I used a 9x13 pan and it worked fine. The cake is moist and flavorful and the glaze is awesome!!! I was just looking for a cake to use up some apples, and boy was I surprised when it turned out soooo good. I have made this cake about 6 times now and I have noticed that using cake flour makes it lighter and not as dense and different types of apples also make a difference. I also like to use about 1/2 C applesauce and 3/4 oil for a healthier version. When I prepare the glaze I bring it to a boil slowly and let it cook just a little maybe a minute then I poke a few holes in the warm cake before pouring the glaze over it.
This cake was ok, i dont see myself making it again anytime soon. The baking time is way too long, it was dried out and I even pulled it out ten minutes early.
I hate to make a recipe for a function without trying it first, but I didn't have time before the garden club meeting. I made this recipe and it was a huge hit. I made it in a bundt pan, baked for 1 hour and used less glaze than called for. I removed the cake from the pan shortly after removing from oven and it worked great. Took the left overs to work and had many requests for the recipe. Thanks
I have made this cake several times for various functions. Have had many requests for the recipe. YUMMY & my 3 year old can't get enough of it. Thanks!
I was a little concerned when making this because the batter was so thick. However, I was pleasantly surprised when it came out. I cooked it in a bundt pan and it looked picture perfect. Everyone loved it and I particularly loved the added flavor and texture of the coconut. It was also more moist than the apple bread that I made the week before from another recipe on here. The glaze wasn't what I expected, but tasted sweet. My wife was expecting a glaze that was more white such as one made from confectioners sugar.
This is a wonderful cake. Loved the coconut in it and the sauce is what really makes the cake. Next time I will poke something into the cake to get the sauce to go to the bottom. I made it exactly like the recipe says except I dusted the finished cake with powdered sugar. LATER; Today I made this cake again and used 1/2 applesauce and 1/2 oil. It is just perfect! It's a great way to cut some fat and still get the great taste.
This was excellent! The amount of oil I poured in the bowl and then the amount of glaze and how that would work out had me a bit worried, but went forward as written with good faith and had a fabulous product. I made exactly as is, no changes!!! I don't usually bring a new trial out in the open til I know it works, but did with this and it was a huge hit!
This is GREAT!!. I didn't have fresh apples or orange juice so I used a quart of home canned apples and used the juice in place of the orange juice. Really moist.
