Dutch Apple Loaf Cake

"There's plenty of recipes for this cake listed, but I think this one sounds a little different. Found it online at Taste of Home. It looks fairly simple and baked in a loaf pan. It would be a great take along for potlucks or just an easy snack for the family. Now that our apple trees are full and ripe, it's a great time to try this out. As an update, finally got around to trying this and loved it. Simple, with a nice presentation and very good. I did add a cup of chopped pecans as we love nuts and everyone enjoyed it. Don't make the mistake I did though - be aware that the divided sugar puts 3 Tablespoons in the apples and then the 1 cup goes in the batter."

    Nice cake with a beautiful presentation. I think I must have done something wrong as maybe it needs to levels of vertical apples? Mine were just at the top which left the rest of the cake just taste almost like a pound cake. Because I love it so much I'm going to try again with two levels. It may explain why I had so many apples leftover. We got a few ramekins of apple crisp too.

    Reviewed for ZWT7- this was a straightforward cake to make and a little different to your regular apple cake. The cake batter is quite thick, but needs to be to hold up the apples. I used 2.5 granny smith apples for this recipe. Smelt wonderful baking in the oven Photo also being posted
