Excellent cake. I've made this for years and everyone who tries it loves it. One thing to mention, the batter will be VERY thick, so it doesn't "pour" very well over the apples. It's best to scoop it out and drop it by spoonfuls and then spread it over the apples. The results are well worth the time.



The cake is definitely beautiful, and definitely moist--which is a bit of an understatement. Very rich and dense with apples, it is actually too "moist" for my liking. Topping the cake as is with a heavy cream cheese frosting was just too much. This probably would have benefited with the addition of one more egg or maybe just less apples. I would have preferred this more "cakey."

My son had to make a German recipe for his German class. We decided on this recipe because I had most of the ingredients here at home.Not knowing how it would turn out,I followed the recipe and the finished product was SO wonderful. I wished he didn't have to take it to school. This is one of the best recipes I've gotten from this site. Thank-you Michele for submitting it.***Tip*** If you use a Kitchen aide, the mixing process is a piece of cake. LOL Also using 8oz of cream cheese for the frosting gives it alittle more cheese cake like taste. 5 star recipe !!!!!!!! Midge
