Sorry, but this recipe made a sugary, soggy mess. I don't know what happened! I'm a somewhat experienced cook, and I followed the recipe to the letter, and the "cake" became, at best, kind of a mushy cobbler. And leftovers the next day had a bunch of oil sitting in the bottom. I'm at 6200 feet, but I've done quite a bit of baking with very few problems, and certainly nothing like this. I've double-checked that I followed the recipe to the letter, and frankly, I'm puzzled as to what went wrong....

This is a delicious pound cake which stays fresh for days and improves with age. I used Empire apples and pulverized them in the blender with the oil and eggs rather than finely chopping them. I also added a tsp. of Cardamom to the recipe. I will certainly make it again. Next time, I may increase the spices a by adding ginger, or 1/2 tsp of cloves and/or allspice. It's a good cake to have around. Thanks for sharing!
