    I made this recipe as written, with the exception of baking it in a Bundt pan. It took a little over an hour to bake while I watched it closely. It turned out perfect! I made an Apple Brandy caramel sauce to drizzle on top. Everyone raved over how good it was. I'll be making this again.

    This is a simple recipe, just make sure to measure properly. I have been to Apple Hill in Placerville many times & love this recipe. I agree with cutting back the sugar to 1 cup though. I've played with the recipe and have tried 1/2 c. brown sugar to 1/2 c. white sugar also. I like to add raisins & nuts, but depends on what is on hand. It is such a great recipe and a hit every time. If your cake fell, it may have to do with how old your baking soda is. I repeat there is not an error in this recipe. I have been using this recipe for at least 5 years.

    Have been making this cake since 1985. We used to cut school and drive up to Apple Hill every October. I cut back on the nutmeg to 1/2 tsp but I grate mine fresh, and I use 1/2 cup white sugar and 1 1/2 cups brown sugar. Perfection in a fall cake.

    My cake flopped. I did exactly what it said and my cake was mush. It did not rise or anything. kmergirl's cake is beautiful. I don't know what happened, but I was very disappointed because this was such a easy recipe to follow.

    It was a unanimous hit with the family. DH had two huge pieces. I agree, though, 2 cups is too much sugar. I actually used 1 cup sugar and 1/2 cup Splenda. I also sprinkled a little powdered sugar on the top just to dress it up.
