Lovely spongelike apple cake. And as stated not overly sweet. I used walnuts for the topping which was nice and crunchy, thanks for posting.
Simply spectacular! I used walnuts, and took the advice of some other reviewers and increased the amount of topping by 50%. I agree with others who noted that the apple flavor is not prominent, but frankly the overall cake is so good that it didn't matter to anyone in my house. :) I may increase the amount of chopped apple slightly next time, and I will make sure to once again use very flavorful apples as a way of bringing as much apple taste as possible to the cake. Other than that, I wouldn't change a thing. I made this for a small party of 6 people, and had nothing but crumbs left at the end of the evening. It's a winner, for sure. Thanks so much!
This cake really is yummy! Not too sweet base with a crunchy, streusel-like nut topping. A must-try.
Excellent recipe! I actually made in a bundt pan. Double the topping. Then spread 1/2 batter in pan, spread 1/2 the topping on this. Then pour remaining batter ontop followed by the remaining 1/2 of topping. This boosts the flavour big time!
This is absolutely yummy. I made this today to celebrate Mother's Day in advance. All my family members love it. I suggest to put twice the quantity of nuts and apples. It will taste even better. I strongly recommend beginner cake- maker to attempt this cake cause it's easy to make and with no chance to fail. Thanks so much for the wonderful recipe.
My family really enjoyed this cake (especially my dad who tends to be a bit picky). I made the changes suggested by some of the other reviewers (adding 50% more topping and apples) and found this worked really well. The only thing I would change for next time is maybe use a different type of apple. I used Jonah Gold and found that you couldn't taste much of the apple so I may try using either Granny Smith or Fuji (one other thing that may have affected this is with the extra topping, it may have overpowered the flavour of the apple so it might be worth trying only 50% more apple and leaving the measurement for the topping the same). Overall, I really enjoyed this cake and loved to see my family enjoy it so much.
DELISH!!! Used whole wheat flour, 1/2 Splenda and 1/2 sugar and Egg Beaters. This is a moist, spongy cake. YUM! Even my dog thought so -- He ate the last half of the cake off of the counter!
My sweetie/eater says: light and fluffy cake, moist and fruity, with just the right amount of sweet crumble topping; not five stars only because it wasn't "amazing". Definitely would enjoy it again. I say: easy to make, tasty for not a lot of hassle and relatively healthy for a cake. I did have to increase the amount of topping. Next time I would increase the apple- the flavor of the cake was mostly the yummy topping, wasn't really apple-ishus for me :)
Made this cake for my other half to take to work & share, & although I haven't heard back from them, I know IT'S A GREAT CAKE in every way! I cut it & put what pieces I could in a slightly smaller, disposable aluminum carrier so have enough pieces left for several meals for the 2 of us! Really is a wonderful cake! I did increase the topping by half & that worked just fine! Thanks for a great keeper! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Please Review My Recipe]
Wonderful cake, so moist and fluffy. Ummm. Really quick and easy to put together. I used low fat sour cream and no nuts (we are not crazy about nuts in food). Made for 'went to the market'
