We love anything with apple in it and apple cakes are favorites. This is a wonderful recipe, but we prefer to substitute orange juice for apple. It seems to cut back on the sweetness. Other than that it is fine as written.
What a fabulous recipe this is! I made it with splenda for baking and splenda blend brown sugar to cut down on the sugar content, and it turned out great...sure is yummy when it is still warm from the oven!
Absolutely delicious and moist! My family and coworkers loved it! So easy to make!
Very good. A keeper. I did half oil and half Apple sauce. It's very moist. To me this recipe was screaming for cinnamon so I added a heaping teaspoon. I used a skewer to poke holes and after the glaze set you could still see the holes so I made another batch of glaze to fill them up. I don't think it will be to much. I also added a pinch of salt and a splash of vanilla to the glaze. This is very delicious.
This cake is very mildly flavored on its own. You'll definitely want to add a good amount of cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves. We really enjoyed it and didn't find it to be oily, just moist. The caramel glaze is delicious. I will make this again.
This was delicious!... soooo good! And it definitely serves more than 12... 5 rows of 3... 15 pieces brings the calories down to 507 (and if you're counting calories, you can have 1/2 a piece without too much guilt).<br/><br/>I used freshly ground whole wheat flour (I like to try whole wheat flour and wasn't sure how that would work... it was great!). The caramel sauce was amazing. I'm so excited to find this recipe. I had lost my favorite apple cake recipe and am so glad I found this.<br/><br/>Thanks!
I found this cake to be too sweet. I might try making it again with 50% less sugar in the glaze.
The VERY best apple cake is Blue Ribbon Apple Cake from America's Test Kitchens. It's involved and time consuming, but well worth the effort. The Food.com cake given here is much easier, but a cake made with oil can in no way be as good as one made with butter.
I made this as per the recipe, but did add cinnamon. It took a lot longer to cook than it said (about 30 mins extra). Didn't feel greasy or oily like some reviewers said, but did taste a little bland and perhaps a little oily too. Wasn't horrible but was nothing special either. I won't make this again, might try tweaking the recipe to add more flavour and reduce some oil or something.
