Despite the batter being unexpectedly thick, this cake is super easy to make and work with. The creamy cream cheese frosting is wonderful as well. I have also used Kittenkal's glaze on it when I didn't have cream cheese on hand and it was just as yummy. A real crowd pleaser!

It was delicious, just not very cake-like. All that cinnamon, plus the cream cheese frosting, makes it seem much more like a cinnamon roll in flavor. If I were to make this again, I'd make the apples much less chunky, use less cinnamon, and modify a cake recipe (perhaps a carrot cake recipe) to make it into an actual cake sort of cake.
