Wow, pretty fantastic, elegant too. I'd make a larger quantity of filling as well, which would distribute it more evenly and thickly in the batter. I made my filling the day before and refrigerated till use, just to save time on the day of company. Used pecans which were fine. I'm going to try this with a lighter flour next, as I was blending whole wheat, spelt, and rice flours, and although it turned out really well, it wasn't sumptuous, but 'healthy'...this cake wants and deserves to be decadent.
Delicious! Made this for christmas dinner this year and it was a hit! The cake comes out dense and moist and beautiful. I increased the apples to two cups and used pecans, which I think went very well together. The glaze was also very good but I did have to double it since I made the first batch a bit too runny. Thanks for a great recipe! I will definitely make this again, but one word of warning: if you're using a handmixer BEWARE! This is a ALOT of dough and very difficult to beat with a hand mixer, at a certain point I had to start stirring by hand because my mixer just couldn't take it any more and the dough was EVERYWHERE! But, hey! All part of the fun!
Mmmmmmm, this was just so lovely even though I forgot the glaze! I also did as suggested and made more filling which I think is a good idea. The cake is nice and moist - especially the second day and it tastes great with pouring cream. Thanks for the recipe : I'll definitely be making this again!
Yummy, yummy. I made more filling as suggested by the other reviewer. Increased apples to 2 cups and the brown sugar to 1/2 cup, added a smidge of cinnamon-the rest I left the same. Great cake, really fills the pan.
I gave this 4 stars. My 4 yrs newphew and I really liked this recipe. I had some sour cream to up and came across this recipe by accident. I had to cut the recipe in half as I had only enough flour for the recipe and I even made a booboo. I added 3 eggs instead of 1 and this still turned out great! So light and fluffy like a cake mix not at all heavy like some homemade cake. As I was making this it smelled just like a box cake me which I love the smell of. Next time I make this I will add more of the apple filling as I thought that was the best part. Overall this was very yummy and I will have it again.
