This cake turned out scrumptiously and the recipe was very easy to follow!! In the cake, I replaced a bit of the flour with oats to add more fiber; for the filling, I used cream cheese instead of butter b/c I was runing low on butter but high on the cream cheese (turned out perfectly); used toasted almonds in the filling, added raisins to the cake, and put my new spice that I received from miller in also (cardamom) as I did not have all the spices. I also used 1 egg istead of just the egg whites. I will definantly be making this in the future!! thanks a lot Mirj!!
I just made this, and it was a hit! Everyone in my family loved it. From reading the reviews, I decided to use 6 tbsp butter, and one whole egg and one egg white instead of the 2 whites, and it was really great! I went a little heavy on the apple as well, and I didn't find it dry at all. Thank you so much for the great recipe!
Great cake! Moist, sweet, and light. Easy to put together, although it does make a lot of dirty dishes. And very, very yummy! Next time I will probably double the nuts in the topping for even more crunch. *I replaced the 3/4 cup sugar with 1/4 cup brown sugar and 1/2 cup Splenda with no ill effects.
