    Hubby and Daughter liked this so very much. Daughter took the recipe with her. Hubby still eating his. But why is it called One Bowl?

    Oh, forgot to mention that the apple filling I used was 10oz and the flavoring throughout tasted perfectly balanced

    This turned out wonderful! My only critique was that there wasn't enough apple for our tastes! My husband devoured three pieces when I got it frosted, and stood over the cake waiting until I started frosting it. The house smelled amazing while it was baking! Thanks for this winner!

    Lovely cake, did raise up high too. I made a few minor alterations. I used 1 3/4 cups sugar instead and my oven is very accurate and this was done in 35 minutes. I used one tsp. of cinnamon and one of apple pie spice and I didn't use frosting, I used a shaker mixed with powdered sugar and cinnamon and sprinkled over the top. I will make this again. Thank you!
