I made this cake 2 days ago for my husband and he loved it! I did, however, make a few adjustments to the basic recipe. I used 1 cup brown sugar and 1 cup of white sugar and used a 1/8 tea. of allspice as well. I also add 3-4 tablespoons of milk as I added the dry ingredients to the sugar and butter mixture. As we speak, I am making another cake to take to xmas party.


Oh my goodness! A great cake. When I read the recipe I was looking forward to having it for dessert and for breakfast. It didn't come close to making it for breakfast! It was all gone within seconds. I loved it and I don't care for baked apple anything. Really good flavor and easy to make. I'll be making thing anytime I need to impress. The only thing I did was drizzle a glaze (powdered sugar, milk, vanilla) on top for a little sweetness and to make it look nice.


I made this recipe with apples that were on the road to becoming bad and margarine. It was SO delicious and moist. It was very easy to make and tasted great.
