Excellent! I made the recipe using all of the optional ingredients. I could only fit 3 apples into my springform pan (I used Honey Crisp apples). I used 1/8 t. almond extract which was just the right amount. I did have to substitute raisins for the currants. I did not have any slivered almonds so sprinkled sliced almonds over the cake. Yum! Will definitely be making this again.
My sister had tried this recipe first and sent me the link, so today I was in the mood for Apple Cake :) The recipe is great and the cake turned out wonderful ... YUMMY !!! I did not add the currants (yuck lol) and baked it just 1 hour and it was done already ... I have made a cake similar to this one before, but this recipe is definitely better.
