I needed to use up some apples, so I made this and took it to work the next day and everyone raved about it. It was soooooooo moist and had so much flavor. I used 3 large apples and substituted pecans for the walnuts. Other than that, I followed the recipe as written. As other reviewers have said, the brown sugar glaze is scrumptious. It makes a lot of glaze. I used about 3/4 of the glaze and I'm going to use the rest on some banana bread that I am making tonight. Thanks for another great recipe, Kittencal.
This recipe is fabulous!! I made because I had some apples that had to be used up and it was gone in a flash! The glaze is AMAZING!! I loved it so much I made a spice cake the next day (no apples left to make this recipe :( ) and topped it with the glaze and took some leftover and poured into a squirt bottle to use whenever I like!!! Thanks kittencal for another Fabulous recipe!!
I made the glaze only - used it on #42976. Yum. The sauce was excellent.
