    This cake is delicious. It turned out moist and flavorful; the apple flavor really shines through. I attempted to make the cake recipe as stated with no alterations, only to discover 10 minutes into baking that I had forgotten to add the raisins and nuts. I baked it in a 9x13 pan for 31 minutes. I used a cream cheese icing which complemented the cake perfectly.

    Ok, I haven't made a layer cake in a hundred years...but thought this would be a good day to try this recipe. Man oh man!!! What a fantastic cake! And it came out BEAUTIFUL! I was so pleased. Simple to put together, I did double the spices, I'm a spicy girl, yea right..LOL and it was perfect. Iced with cream cheese frosting. This will be a favorite around here. Thanks for sharing with us.

    What a great recipe! I used the frosting as suggested by sweet chef and I couldn't wait until it was cool so I drizzled the frosting on anyway and ate it warm! Just yummy..
