WOW!! This cake is so great, you just have to try it! I did make one change...I didn't have ground cloves, so I added an extra tsp of cinnamon. This HUGE cake bakes to a very dark color and has a very moist texture. I made a simple glaze using milk and powdered suger which I drizzled over the top. PERFECT PERFECT...HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!! This one is definitely going into my permanent recipe box! Thanks for a great recipe!

This cake is wonderful! Just the thing for a breakfast cake in place of muffins. I added cinnamon to the apples, used all brown sugar in the cake batter, switched the proportions of wheat to white flour. I baked it in a 9 x 13 glass cake dish, topped with oatmeal streusel, for 20 mins at 400 and turned the heat down to 325 for 55 mins.


This recipe is now a holiday favorite with my family and friends. I bake it in an angel food cake pan and it works great! In my opinion, it serves more than 14. We eat it for breakfast as well as dessert. Very good!!
