Wow, this is a really great cake! You sure aren't kidding when you say it's more apple than cake -- I was worried it didn't have enough batter to hold it together. But I needn't have worried, it turned out amazing. I used golden delicious apples from my uncle's orchard. I think the slight hint of rum flavor is wonderful, and I am debating on whether or not to make a rum glaze to pour over the rest of the cake. Then again, it might not last that long! Thank you, blucoat, for this amazing recipe!
I had this recipe for Marie-Helene's cake for a long time, I finally made it recently. The cake is definitely moist, more apple than cake!! It is good and yes, I will make it again.
