Perfect Apple Cake! SUPER moist and just the perfect amount of spice. I diced my apples into smaller than dice size pieces, only because I made them in different pans and was worried they wouldn't soften enough. (I divided the recipe into 3 foil loaf pans and only baked for about 55 minutes.) Thanks for sharing this recipe!
This recipe is great and much loved in my family. Though I personally like to reduce or even half the sugar, it was extremely sweet the first time I made it! But that also might be because I'm from Europe as I've heard that American cakes are more sweet in general. All in all I certainly do recommend this recipe if you have some spare apples laying around and are feeling like cake :)
There are many, many apple cake recipes on this site (and others) but we still prefer this one. Because of personal taste we cut back on sugar and substitute 1/2 oil and 1/2 melted unsalted butter. But again, that is because we like it that way. Otherwise no changes are necessary in this recipe and highly recommend it. Also easy enough for a beginner cook because it is almost failproof.
