    justcallmetoni's Note:

    New York is apple country and this cake recipe is courtesy of the state's apple growers group. I am tucking it away to make for Thanksgiving but thought I would share it in the meantime. My own version will probably include less sugar as we don't like things quite so sweet. Please note the preparation time include an hour of soaking time.

      Wow! This goes right into the 10-star book. I cut the recipe down to fit an eight inch pan and used tart Washington apples (the REAL apple country :) ). The spices were right on and the cake was very moist. Mine also was a bit overdone at the edges, so I will bake a shorter time next time. Served cooled but will try it warm next time with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream.

      I used a boxed spice cake mix and added the macerated apples and some extra apple pie spice. It worked well. Next time, I'll throw some raisins in with the apples.

      So wonderful! I took mine out at 30 minutes and it was perfectly baked. If you want a strong bourbon flavor, eat it warm, but for just a hit of bourbon, it definitely needs cool. I learned that after getting buzzed off the first piece! ;)
