Love it this is awesome
Looked and smelled so good, but what a disappointment flavor-wise. The cake and the apple filling were very blah and devoid of flavor. I have so many other good apple recipes and would definitely not make this again.
I decided to prepare this cake for the first time & I made it 10/24/13. I DID make adjustments on the recipe: I had Red Delicious & Granny Smith apples, so I used 8 total cups instead of 11 cups of apples. I also greased and floured the 13x9x2" baking pan. I used 1/2 cup orange juice and added 1/8 tsp. ground nutmeg to the sifted dry ingredients. I also used 1 tsp. kosher salt. I kept the amounts of the brown sugar, sugar, flour, baking powder, vanilla, eggs, oil, ground cinnamon the same! I wanted to see how 8 cups of apples would work! I recall one time making an apple pie and it looked to me like a moon crater as I'd added so many apples to it! It was like the pie was just sunken in the middle instead of a nice high top!I did use the brown sugar and cinnamon with the apples as instructed and then I topped 1/2 the batter in prepared pan with the apples. Then I spread the balance of the cake batter over the apples and sprinkled the 1 Tbsp. sugar/1 tsp. cinnamon over top of batter and baked cake as directed in recipe. It has a fragrant aroma already! I plan to give this cake to a friend. And Ellen, you are right! This cake IS more like apple pie, than cake on account of the layers of batter and apple filling! I consider this recipe a definite keeper for me! Thank you so much for sharing this recipe with Taste of Home! Dawn E. Lowenstein
