This cake is delicious! It was very moist and had a wonderful apple flavor. For the rum sauce, I used 4 tablespoons margarine, (1/4 cup), and evaporated milk instead of the cream. Tasted really good. Thanks!
This really was very good - the rum butter sauce definitely takes this cake from good to outstanding! It was also easy and quick to make. I did not add the pecans. Thank you so much for sharing!
I had some apples from my grandmothers tree I needed to use. I found this recipe in my cookbook BEST of the BEST from the Mid-Atlantic Cookbook. It was really good, especially with the sauce. I came to post it to Zaar and was delighted to find it is already posted! You really should give this a try.
