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!

Wonderful. I used a large springform pan with tube inset, so only used 4 apples. My glaze came out like a frosting, so next time I'm going to used boiling water, and more of it. Thanks for a luscious posting.

This was good. It was dense, more like a coffeecake texture, and the apples were delicious. I used 4 Granny Smiths...any more and it all wouldn't have fit in my bundt pan. Don't leave off the glaze. It was delicious! My cake looked exactly like the picture. Leftovers were great for breakfast.

Excellent cake! Made it two days ago and it's all gone. The look on my husbands face had to make me laugh. I asked him if he like it and he replied Mmmm with a mouth full lol. The cake reminded me of a cinnamon roll with apples in it. Dense, flavorful. will def make it again....thank you for the recipe!!!!!!

Wish I could give more than 5 stars for this recipe. I absolutely love apple cakes (well apple anything) and this recipe is awesome. We enjoyed this last nite for a German themed dinner, as well as this morning with our cup of java. Try this one people, you wont know what you are missing if you dont! Made for ZWT4.
