Yes, awesome is the perfect word to describe this wonderful moist cake! It really deserves more than a five star rating. I made this cake using half and half in place of milk and used fresh pears, and cut down the sugar a bit. The caramel topping was just to die for on the cake. I baked mine in my air convection oven at 325 degrees, and was done in 40 minutes. I can't wait to make this cake again, it was just delicious! Sarahsmomi, thank you so much for sharing another winner!...Kitten:)

I made this last night and it was utterly delicious! I did do some changes, which I think helped the resulting cake. I grated the apples (I used four smallish green ones) and instead of 1 cup of veg oil, I reduced it to 2/3c and put in 1 cup of milk. I also increased the amount of vanilla to 1 tbsp, and the cinnamon to 3 tsp. Eaten warm, it reminded me of very good carrot cake - except it wasn't carrot! DH LOVED the cake!

Outstanding! Made this morning and served this evening for a large family gathering and was very pleased with the results. I used 4 golden delicious apples, 1T vanilla and added 1/2 tsp cardomom. I also sprinkled it with walnuts after pouring on the glaze- it was truly enjoyed by all...can't wait to try with pears!
