"Now, I’m not too sure about the scientifics of baking… I read the couple of reviews that mentioned the cake having been dry. The first time I made this cake, I followed the recipe exactly, and the cak..." See moree came out -- delicious. I considered it to be more… “heavy” than “dry.” The second time, there were a lot of differences: I was a bit reckless. I forgot the salt and the jelly, and I dumped all the ingredients into one bowl and stirred really hard. I was using two 8x8 inch pans, so I increased the recipe (in my head) by ¼ and went with the flow. I used three apples. (As I said, I forgot the jelly entirely. Oops.) -- The 8x8 pans were so shallow that the lack of jelly -- was no problem at all. In addition to my modifications, in order to make it “less dry” -- I added about… a ¼ cup of milk. Recklessness, indeed! I wasn’t sure exactly how it would come out… or if that was breaking an age old baking rule -- etc etc. The results. Were. Amazing. I have never eaten a better cake. I think I am accidentally going to have eaten one entire 8x8 pan of this cake by the time tomorrow is over. My grandmother, aunt, & three cousins loved it as well. So yes, as a suggestion: I would suggest -- adding ¼ cup milk. There were about three pieces that were eaten before the cake had a chance to sit -- for even 10 minutes, and this might seem obvious, but the texture was a thousand times better a few hours later. (I’m eating a huge piece, taking bites inbetween sentences. Mmm!)"
"This recipe is good, but I read the other reviews before making it and so I only used two cups of flour rather than three. I also chopped half the apples and mixed it in with the batter and then put ..." See morethe other half on top. With those changes, the cake was really moist and turned out fabulous!"
"If you want to choke to death, try this cake. It was so dry, it was unbelievable. We have a fox that frequents our yard and as you know, foxes will eat just about anything. We watched him eat it ....." See more.it looked like we had fed him a cup of peanut butter...his mouth was nearly stuck shut! Don't make this CAKE!!!!"
