just finsihed making this and it was delicious!! i have never made an apple cake before and was looking for something simple and similar to what my mom used to make when i was a kid. this was very close and possibly a bit better than hers. the cake had a great texture, and was very moist. it wasnt too sweet, but it did have to bake a bit longer probally closer to 50 minutes but it could just be my oven. i baked it in a 9inch round cake pan. great recipe! i might use more "sprinkles" next time but otherwise over all simple and delicious!

This is the best recipe ever. My whole family loved it. Had it after dinner tonite for dessert. Just put a few Tablespoons of vanilla ice cream on top and let it melt on it just a bit. I think you could use just about any apple in this recipe. I also had to bake it for about 45-50 mins in an 8x8 pan. Just keep an eye on it and check it like you would with any other cake. I also used apple pie spice with the sugar.

I made this cake today and I must say it is really really good. I used a 9X5 loaf pan and baked it at 350 (no convection) for 60min, and it came out perfect. I chose to substitute the milk with 1/2&1/2 (daring!). You should try it. And don't be shy with the cinnamon-sugar topping. It was bubbling on top of the apples when it came out of the oven. I think 4 apples is enough myself, not 6. I cooled it for 10min on trivets and then just cut right in. This is a fantastic recipe. Impress your house guests. This one will not disappoint. Enjoy.

Loves cake! February 12, 2012

We just finished this delicious cake for breakfast. I also had to bake mine for about 1 hour, but I was using an 8 inch square pan. I did make a few changes to healthify it just a bit. I used 1/4 cup of butter, 3/4 cup of sugar and replaced 1 cup of the white flour with whole wheat flour. Oh, I also used buttermilk in place of the milk as I had some to use up. I think this added to making the cake more tender and light. Thanks for sharing!

Another winner from Gamma! This cake is delicious and simple. I used a 9" pan and had to bake for an hour for the center to be set.

My grandmother was a wonderful baker as well and she made what she called German apple cake--a recipe that was never written down. I've always wanted to recover it--and this comes SO close to memory. I made it in a 10 inch tart pan, using four apples and a pear (what I had on hand). The batter was really a bit too much for the pan I used, but the cake was a delight. Next time, I'll use just a bit less of the "sprinkles" and a deeper tart pan. Thanks, Jess!!

I made this over the weekend for some guests and they just loved it. So did I! It is moist and delicious! I will most definitely make this one again. Made for the Aussie/New Zealand 12 Days of Christmas Recipe Swap.
