This has a really nice flavor but I found thought there was too much apple with little cake and the moisture of the apples made the cake there was too mushy for me. I will try this again with and cut the apple in half. Made for PRMRT
Fantabulous apple dessert! I could not get enough of this and was glad there were others to share in the pleasure as I most definitely could have eaten the whole thing myself. It is so moist and the flavor of the granny smith apples just shine through the cake itself and then add to that the wonderful nutty topping well it just makes it a star dessert. The only little tweak I made was to add a bit of fresh ground nutmeg to the topping mix as I love that combination with cinnamon. It is lovely warmed up and does last a good bit using the refrigerator too. I'll definitely be saving this to my favorites cookbook as it is just delightful. Oh want to mention that it only took 60 minutes to bake in my oven so definitely watch it as it turns golden (this may be because my springform pan is a dark coated pan). Made for 123 Hit Wonders.
Although I'd made this to take to a neighbor couple, I ended up sharing it with them (they got half of it & I kept the other half!)! GREAT, GREAT TASTING & well-worth making again! I made up some exceptionally dark brown sugar to use in this recipe & was generous with the lemon zest, as well! Ended up serving it with a nice helping of cold, homemade chunky apple sauce rather than the whipped cream! Thanks for posting this wonderful keeper of a recipe!

This is nice and tasty. I found it somehow long to prepare. Maybe it was just me. I had no spring pan so I used a lasagna pan. The upstairs smelt so good while this was baking. I used part dark and part light brown sugar in it. Made for ZWT4 for the Chic Chefs.
This is a wonderful breakfast or brunch cake! The crumb topping is a terrific addition to the moist, light cake with the diced apples. I made this as directed, however, make sure to watch your baking time. My cake was ready in only 50-55 minutes. Not the 1 hour and 15 minutes as the directions indicated. Thank you, Annacia!
