A grand recipe!! Made it this afternoon and had a warm slice. I will give at least 3/4 of it to my neighbors who have relatives visiting, as the 2 of us can't possibly finish it off. (Well, I could try. LOL) I did add double the cinnamon as we love it so. I may also try pecans next time. Great flavor, thanks for posting, HokiesLady. Made by a Red Hottie for ZWT6.
My Mom has been making this cake for over 40 years since she got it from my Dad's German employee's wife after she (the wife from Germany) came by for dinner one night and brought one with her. She gave the recipe to my Mom and she (my Mom) makes it all the time. The only difference is the recipe we have came with raisins instead of apples. It is phenomenal and I can vouch it is authentically German.
The WOW factor of this cake is thru the roof. IT is one of the best cake of its kind I ever tasted. It is also extremely easy to make. I added a little extra cinnamon and I tthink it was the right move. I will do this again for the hollidays. I can't wait.
We made this recipe for my aunt's birthday dessert and we all really enjoyed it. It wasn't difficult to make, and was done to perfection, following the directions as posted. I used the new bundt cake pan DH bought me for my birthday and thought the cake looked really pretty. Loved the apple/walnut combination. I would definitely make this cake again. Thanks!

Oh!! this was a very nice cake, I took it with me as we were invited out to eat with friends and my cake was the topic of conversation at the end of the night. There were about twenty people at the night out and most had a piece of cake, so your recipe was given a marvelous review. Everyone said they liked it, and I couldn't get them to give marks out of five, most of them said ten. It was a very nice recipe. Thank you for posting it. Made for ZWT#6 2010
