    Marie's Note:

    This tastes just like the red candy apples that we are all so familiar with. The apples are cooked in a mixture that includes red hot cinnamon candies, then placed in the bottom of a baking pan and topped with the yellow sour cream cake batter. Cake is inverted over a serving platter when done and the red apple topping makes for a great presentation. Delicious!

      I thought this cake was going to be a winner with the family and it just wasn't. The cake flavor is wonderful, they didn't like the cinnamon candy in the apples. I was very surprised at this, I liked it. But I'm thinking I could make the apples plain, and spice them more like apple pie and then proceed with the rest of the recipe because the cake is really good.

      This was very simple to make. I made it in a tube pan and it made a beautiful presentation. Followed the recipe exactly. Thanks for posting.

      We really enjoyed this. The real challenge was finding the red hots :lol:! I accidentially added 3 eggs instead of the 2 and used plain yogurt for the sour cream. This is different from most cakes and enjoyable! Thanks:)
