I looooove apple cake. So when this one came to me in a publication from the Bucoda Improvement District, I tagged it immediately. Have not made it yet but certainly have added it to the list.

  3. Mix together the apples, sugar and cinnamon and set aside.

  6. Bake for 90 to 105 minutes. Remove from oven.
  7. Cool for 10 minutes then invert onto a serving plate.

This was absolutely delicious. I made it exactly as written, and it turned out perfect. I may try substituting some apple sauce for the oil next time, just to make it a bit healthier but other than that I wouldn't change a thing.
Thanks so much for posting!

Fantastic Cake and we loved the glaze. I substituted apple sauce for half the oil and it was delicious and moist.

At school we have an "Internation Food Day", and since I'm taking German, I had to choose a german recipe to bake and take to school for all of the language classes to try. Everybody LOVED this! I couldn't help myself from indulging in this scrumptious cake. I did reduce the cooking time by about 10 minutes though and it was so perfectly moist. The one thing I would suggest is to make sure that the batter is covering all of the apples at the top of the bundt pan. If you don't, it almost gives the illusion that your burning the cake, when it's really just the apples getting quite cooked. Thank you SO much! I am definitly going to have to bake this again!
