i loved this cake and so did my son, and he's a picky eater, thankfully his favorite fruit is apples. i had about 8 soft apples medium size for this, but i had to cook it an extra 10 mins because it was still a bit raw after 45 mins, and i cooked it at 375. it was delicious i even added some pictures i hope they go up soon

Sarah, your mother's "other" apple cake is equally inviting, and when put on offer in our bake sale, the cake invited several prospective buyers with "do you have any more just the one David bought?" (referring, of course to the Passover Apple Cake) I had to say no, but your Mom's Soft Apple Cake was equal to the task. Baked in a 9 x 13 (or thereabouts) disposable pan, it was a lovely addition to our Bake Sale fund raiser. Thank you again Sarah for this lovely recipe...
