      I'm not going to leave a star rating because I have to believe that I did something wrong. I followed the directions and used a large bundt pan, but it turned out terrible. Undercooked apples and wet batter. First of all 3 pounds of apples was waay too many. I got 2.5 pounds and it was still too much. Three apples would have sufficed. After putting half of the batter in and putting as many apples as would fit (still not even half of what I had), there was not really enough batter to cover up the apples for the next layer. So after an hour of baking, the apples were still crunchy and the batter was raw in some parts. I will probably try to find another recipe similar to one I received in high school from a German exchange student several years ago. It was much simpler and turned out nicely.

      This cake is very, very yummy! The apples really are the star of the show and make the cake taste fresh and fruity. The batter is very airy and light with a great taste. It reminded us of a cake our local bakery makes, which we all like a lot. :) We only made 1/3 of the recipe and then realised the only dish small enough to hold the dough was a square pan. So, we didnt layer it as described, but it was still truly yummy and also nice to look at. Our apples were on the tart side, but we still only used half of the sugar called for and that way it was still sweet enough for us. THANKS SO MUCH for sharing this lovely recipe with us, Chef! It will be made again! Made and reviewed for one of my babies during PAC Fall 09.
