I thought this cake was wonderful! It was so simple to make. As others have said, the most difficult part is peeling the apples. After that, it takes 5 minutes to prepare everything. Also as others have said, the dough was incredibly thick and difficult to stir prior to the addition of the apples. I only added 1 cup of sugar instead of the instructed 2 cups and I thought the cake was the perfect amount of sweetness. The only other change I made was that I baked the cake for only about 40 minutes, as opposed to the recommended 50-55 minutes. When I checked on the cake it looked golden brown so I took it out and it was perfectly moist. I highly recommend this recipe!
This cake was pretty amazing. I am glad other reviewers mentioned the thickness of the batter. Without these warnings I would have been very hesitant as it really doesn't seem like enough for the amount of apples. I reduced the sugar to 1.5 cups and baked it for only 45 minutes. Easy and delicious. I plan to make this for my next potluck. Thanks so much! This is a winner.
Really, really good cake! Forgot to rate/review it the first time I made it. I add a bit more of the spices (personal taste) and use about half palm sugar. It's excellent just as is, though -- no need to change anything. Thanks for posting this, MizzNezz.
The first time I made this cake I thought it would not be as good as it is! The batter is stiff yet sticky and you have to "massage" it into the baking dish, not pour it in. I cut back on the sugar (1 cup) and added 1 tsp. of nutmeg. I always add nutmeg to any recipe containing cinnamon. I also use Canola oil which makes it lighter. It is such a quick, easy and satisfying apple cake. We can't keep it in the house!
I used 3/4 cup of sugar, 1/2 cup oil, 1/4 c water (next time apple sauce) and it was just delicious. I will definitely be making this again and again. :)
This was pretty good. I did have to add more spices to it. I used 1 cup Splenda instead of sugur and only 1/4 cup oil and the rest applesauce. It was very good. Only problem is it didn't raise very much. I'll buy new baking soda and try again. I subtracted one star because I had to add more spices to it.
We loved this! It was sooo good and very easy to put together! After reading many of the reviews, I reduced the sugar to 1 cup and added another tsp. of cinnamon, and a bit of nutmeg and allspice. I, too, was worried that it seemed very thick and not like a cake batter. (tho I don't bake that much lol) It turned out perfect! I checked the time at 40 minutes and baked it for a total of 45 minutes. Next time, I may trying adding some chopped walnuts or pecans. Thanks so much for posting thi, MizzNezz! : )
OMG! The pictures do not do this recipe justice! This cake is so wonderful! Like others have said, pealing and slicing the apples is the hardest part. I followed the recipe as written using 5 Granny Smith apples, and it came out great!
This was great! My family loved it. I reduced the sugar and used half brown sugar, plus I added more cinnamon - all personal preference. Yum! I also sprinkled cinnamon and sugar all over the top before I baked it - makes a nice crust. Thanks so much for this one! Definitely a keeper.
This is delicious! I would consider this more of a breakfast/brunch type cake however, like a coffee cake. I don't believe I would serve this as a dessert; just a personal preference. It was quite sweet, I will cut back the sugar a bit next time as other reviewers have suggested. I have an apple corer/peeler/slicer, so altogether it only took me about 10 minutes to prep this. I love the simplicity! I will be making this often. Thanks!
