Rarely do I ever write the following words but must this time. First time making cake, I found it to be way too sweet. Crazy, I know. Second time making the cake, omitted the white chocolate and it was amazing!
This is my favorite Robin Hood Flour recipe (to give credit to the orignal creator). I make it at least once a year, and have done so for the last 20 years... It's definately a family favorite.
I'm so sorry, I wish I could give it more stars. The cake portion was really, really lovely. Very moist and had that wonderful apple flavour. However for us, the topping ruined it. We found that the sweetness of the chocolate combined with the brown sugar and toffee bits overpowered the cake. I will make this again, but will change the topping ingredients a bit. I might try replacing the chocolate with some pecans, or maybe just use the brown sugar, flour and butter mixture. Made for the Auzzie/NZ Recipe Swap #24 *UPDATE* Jan 21/09 I made the cake again today, but without the chocolate chips. What a *winner*. The cake is still moist and flavourful. I added pecans in place of the chocolate. Fantastic. I guess I'm just not a white chocolate kind of girl. Thanks Dotty2. This is a terrific cake.
