I made this cake and found it to be very heavy and way too sweet. I mean there's four cups of sugar in this thing!!! Holy cow!! I wo t make it again.
I thought this cake was just OK. It was very bland, too sweet, and too oily for my family's tastes. I wouldn't make it again, but if I did, I would add cinnamon, salt, and twice the apples. I will be looking for another apple cake recipe that is healthier, spicer and has less sugar and more apples.
I just noticed I did not review this yet!! I made this cake to go along with the pies on Thanksgiving!! WOW!! Everyone loved it!! Very rich and decadent! I baked the cake 3 days prior to serving it...and it was perfect! Thank you Connie K!!
