    This comes from a rich German heritage. Grandma always made the best "apfel" kuchen. Her recipes were always simple, but tasted great!

      I have to post a review in response to a former review; to any one who has been here longer than June of this year, 2010, they will know that the changeover from RecipeZaar to threw up numerous glitches, one of them being alterations in ingredients and their measurements, as well as the plural being used instead of the singular in the ingredients list! So, a low review based on the faults of the software on this site and NOT based on the taste of the recipe, is a little unfair! The order of the recipe ingredients also changed as well as basic punctuation - but NOT the taste of the delicious recipes that are posted here. I will be making this myself over the next week and will report back with my TASTE findings. I had to mention this! Thanks! FT:-)

      I made this today for brunch, and my whole house still smells delicious! This is a great recipe! Easy to fix and I love the dough, easy to work with. I had several kinds of apples, so decided to use all of them! Sometimes the apples don't get cooked enough IMHO, but I was truly delighted that these apples were perfect! I just noticed something, and would like to just say this: When someone makes a comment on the recipes at this site, they would be taken much more seriously if they have their own recipes posted here. Otherwise, it could look like someone's just going through the recipes and picking them apart. I would hate to see that.
      WI, thanks so much for a great fall recipe that will be made many times, especially this season!
