This is wonderful recipe...I cannot believe I tried all the other apple cake recipes didnt try this one!! It has a wonderful texture and flavour. Unlike the German Apple cake it does not get too moist to handle properly. Unlike Apple CakeV it doesnt need a topping that sometimes makes it soggy.Is much moister than the Jewish apple cakes. I have made it 3times in the past two days (once by scaling down the recipe to half and baking in a 8x8 pan) and its turned out perfect each time. Of course I did make a few changes based on what previous reviewers said. I used only 1-3/4 cup sugar, 3/4 cup oil and cut the 4tsps of cinnamon to 2tsp. The best part is its easy and quick. While the kids hold the hand mixie and whip up the eggs and sugar....the apples are peeled and sliced..and doesnt take too long after that. Thanks, Ann.....this is a winner!!


This cake was easy and delicious. After reading all the reviews I was certainly torn; sweet apple vs tart apple, nuts vs no nuts, 2 cups sugar vs less sugar, frosting vs no frosting. What's a girl to do? Well, this is so unlike me, but I followed the recipe exactly and it was just right. I used 5 large Granny Smith apples. I think a tart apple is the way to go. If you leave out the nuts, the cake is going to taste sweeter so you might want to adjust the sugar. And I can't imagine adding frosting to this cake, but to each his own. I served mine with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream and got rave reviews from everyone. I will definitely be making this again and again.


I LOVED this recipe!!! It was so good, better than I had imagined. I used more apples and mixed most into the batter, but then saved a lot to place neatly on top of the batter, completely covering the cake and then sprinking the sugar and cinnamon on top of that. It looked very nice and tasted amazing!
