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!
I agree with everyone else! The only thing I would say is you need (a) tasty apples - not useless watery ones, and (b) a HUGE bowl. There is more apple than cake in this recipe and I kept losing bits of cake over the side. Other than that it was very easy and tastes lovely. Oh, and I used Mixed Spice instead of Cinnamon. Thanks for posting.
Fantastic cake! The flavor and texture is amazing. Next time I'll cut the sugar in half, just personal preference. I'll be making this cake again and again. Thanks so much for posting!
My grandson loved this cake as did his mother. I do not eat many sweets so they rated it. It was easy to make.
(I didn't rate b/c I significantly changed the flavors per another reviewer's feedback.) I made the recipe as stated, and added: another 1 tsp cinnamon (for a total of 3 tsp of cinnamon); 1 tsp ginger; 1 tsp cloves; 1/2 tsp nutmeg; and 1/2 tsp all spice. For the 3/4 cup veg oil, I used 1/4 cup sunflower oil and 1/2 cup peanut oil. This gave the cake a slightly nutty taste that went really well with the spices. Cake was flavorful, moist, and delicious. I'll definitely make again. Thanks!
I made this, with the following changes, over the weekend and my family devoured it! I used coconut oil, cut the sugar to 1 cup (yes, it was plenty sweet enough), used spelt flour, used 5 cups of unpeeled/small chunk apples and used 2 varieties, and added 1 cup of chopped pecans. It is SOOOOO good. Perfect on a cold autumn dinner.
So good! I used Golden Delicious apples, unpeeled and chopped into a small dice. Otherwise no changes to the recipe. Moist and delicious and the 15 min prep time listed is no joke, it took me maybe 10 min without peeling the apples. Thanks for posting will def make again!
Super good cake. Loved the moist apples and the soft chewy texture of the cake. Too much sugar which is why I rated it less than 5. Could easily cut down the sugar by 1/2 cup. Other than that I believe this will be very popular at any function I bring it to. Thanx!
This cake is excellent! I used 1 cup of brown sugar in place of the 2 cups of white (mainly because I adore brown sugar in cakes) and doubled the cinnamon (personal preference!!). I topped with a cre cheese "frosting" (much thinner than a typical cream cheese frosting) and caramel sauce.. This cake was a hit with everyone! Will be making this many more times to come!! Thanks for posting this recipe!!
The only change I made to this recipe was to cut it in half because I wasn't sure I had enough apples for the whole recipe. This does taste very good but it's too sweet. Next time I make it I will cut the sugar in half like other reviewers suggested.
