  1. i have now made this recipe twice out of 3 days. i find it very moist and sweet. i put more apple in just because, after 35 minutes it was done perfect with a little crunch on top. really enjoyed sharing it with freinds who loved it too.thank you for sharing.
  2. We pretty much love ANYTHING "apple," & that definitely includes this delicious, super easy & quick to make cake...(It's one of my absolute favorites) I use 1/2 Cup granulated sugar & 1/2 Cup packed dark brown sugar (to enrich the flavor a bit) & leave the peel on Granny Smith apples...(It's even faster & more nutritious) I love adding raisins (I find it doesn't matter a bit whether you use golden or dark raisins...I always "plump" them up first in a dish of hot water) I use whatever kind of nuts I have on hand which is usually either pecans or walnuts, but almonds work as well...& I always toast them first...We love cinnamon so i always add an extra 1/2 t or more...For all you "desert-aholics," I'm not ashamed to admit that I never make this TERRIFIC cake recipe without finishing with a homemade, rich, & buttery caramel frosting...Thank you for sharing...
  3. Perfect just as it is...the entire family loved it this one's a keeper Thank you for an easy but delicious recipe I read some of the reviews and cannot understand why anyone would complain about putting one cup of sugar in the entire recipe after all this is a DESSERT and not a meal and without the butter it woud be extremely dry, crumbly and the texture and taste would be awful 1 stick of butter as the recipe calls for is also perfect!
  4. This is a very good recipe. It's a near twin to a recipe my mother used to make. And I find that I like it better without the raisins. But all in all a keeper recipe.
  5. I see many people made it but there seems to be no mention at all of the butter and the extra sugar in the directions. I had no choice, added the butter to the mixture and skipped the sugar--hope it works; I have to bring a dessert to dinner tonight! Will rate it later. Please complete the directions here or did I skip something perfectly obvious?
