Very easy and delicious cake to make with common ingredients. I've made a few times, and it always pleases. Substitutions/variations I've tried: toasted walnut oil in place of some of the butter, adding walnuts to the topping, using Mixed Sweet Spice in place of the cinnamon and nutmeg.
I was apprehensive to try this one as i am not a fan of apple cakes. But i have all the ingredients on hand, decided to try it. It was very easy to prepare, did only the topping and the apples in the food processor (i only have the 2cup kind) and did the rest using a hand held mixer. Very easy to follow instructions and the cake turned out very light (and crumbly). My husband had 3 servings though he said he was very full after we had dinner. That says a lot!!
Lovely light cake - incredibly light texture actually, for all that it only has one egg and is made in the processor. I substitute Nuttelex (dairy-free)margarine for the butter which works just fine. I've made this twice now, once for home and once for a fund-raiser, and it's been very well-received both times. AND I love how easy it is to make! Thanks for posting... :)
I loved the ease of mixing this cake. The apples provide a lot of texture and moisture to the cake. I did use 1/2 sugar and 1/2 Splenda in the cake and baked it in an 8 inch square pan. This produced a cake with nice volume. It is great as is or can be easily dressed up with frozen vanilla yogurt and warmed caramel sauce.
Really yummy & extremely easy to make
Love this cake. Love the topping so much. Hubby don't eat rolled oats, even he like's the topping. Made mine in a loaf pan, that helps with hubby's lunch box.
