This cake had really great flavor and was super easy to put together. The only thing I would advise is not to put it in a bundt pan. It completely collapsed, but that didn't stop us from eating it with our fingers.
I visited Apple Hill last month and brought home several different types of apples. I found this recipe on the back of a plastic bag holding 5 LBS of Braeburn apples. I made this yesterday for a Baptism celebration at a friends house. Everyone loved this delicious cake. I was hearing a lot of mmm's and yums! I made a few changes to the recipe . I used a half cup of white sugar and a half cup of brown sugar. I also sifted my flour. I used a variety of braeburns, Fuji's and a variety that they sell at Apple Hill called Arkansas Black which is a crisp sweet and tart apple delish! I think by using the brown sugar it gave this cake a sticky gooey texture. Next time I will use all white sugar to compare. I made my cake in 2 round pans but I will use one round pan next time. I also made a Maple glaze that I drizzled in the middle of the cake. This recipe is so simple with outstanding results. Thanks for posting the recipe.
This is a family favorite! I make it every year we visit Apple Hill. I like to use a mix of Romes, Fujis, and Galas. I also go with 1 cup white sugar, 1 cup brown sugar. This cake's so good, my vegan daughter will cheat for a taste.
