Very easy to make. I made it for the second time. Like other readers, I had ended up with apples left over. Today, I decided to add ALL the apples to the cake (I used 3 large ones). I layered and layered. I ended up with 4 layers of apples on top of the batter! The batter rose up through the apples. Toward the end of baking, I sprinkled a nice layer of sugar on top (the cinnamon was already on the apples layer by layer) and let it caramelize. Gave it a nice color and crispiness. It was super moist and delicious. And beautiful.

This was a super easy delightful cake! I made it for our friends' annual come and go dinner/hand out candy to trick or treaters/ Halloween party this past Saturday. We are there the whole time so I usually help with the cooking! I served this room temp and there was not a crumb left at the end! Thanks for posting!

This cake has a great consistency for a morning breakfast cake as well as dessert. I made it for breakfast actually :) I topped it with a big dollop of whip cream and was in heaven eating each bite. This is a must make if you haven't already tried it. I will cherish this recipe and make it many times, you can rest assured! Next time I might add in some chopped walnuts, as they are always a treat for me when I bake anything and great with apples. Thank you for sharing this winner with us French Tart!

Delicious! That sums it up. One of my taste testers describes the flavor as a cinnamon bun with apples. I used a round pan and was only able to get 3 apples into the cake. I'll try a square pan next time (there will be a next time) and see whether it makes a difference. Also, I didn't read the recipe carefully before starting to make it and had to make my own self rising flour substitute as a result. The recipe still worked out beautifully. Thanks for sharing.

Reviewed foir ZWT III. Oooh, this cake is DELICIOUS! I made it for tomorrow as I've guests coming for dinner but I seriously doubt it'll last that long! The only change I made to the recipe was to use a round tin and not a square one....Thanks for another great recipe Karen! :)
