This cake was fantastic. I love how the top is a bit crunchy, very nice. I had so many apples to use up from my tree and this is a recipe I will be using again. Thanks for posting.

Such an easy cake to make. I used 5 different varieties of apples, left over from making applesauce and left out the nuts as my husband does not like them. It baked up nice with the top a little crunchy and the inside moist and flavorful. I might add a bit of nutmeg the next time for a bit more spice. I could see doing this recipe with mixed fruits--apples, pears, peaches. It would be a great summer dessert. Serve it with some fresh whipped cream or vanilla ice cream to make it decadent.

This was very yummy. Admittedly, I made many changes. I used 1/2 cup oil and 1/2 cup homemade applesauce, reduced the sugar to 1 1/2 cups, and used raisins instead of walnuts. I also used a GF flour mix (Bob's Red Mill) and xantham gum. I will certainly make this again. It was a great way to use up extra apples

Oh, this is DELISH! Love the bit of crunch on the top, just the right sweetness to it. I used 3 Granny Smith apples that were on their way out. I can only imagine how this is going to be served with some vanilla ice cream - will that be heaven? Thanks for sharing the recipe, Mary!

This cake was really easy and we liked the flavor but it was a bit oily for us. I think I'm going to try less oil next time.. maybe just 1 cup?
