Its tasty, very easy and quick. It tastes better than it looks. But too sweet for me. I will lower the amount of suger next time and will make it in a smaller form. Mine turned out bit too thin unfortunatly. ( How tall should it be?) and also its darker than the other pictures you have uploaded.

Okayy so i made this recipe like 10 times already because my friends and family love it sooo much!!!! Great thing is that its so easy that i dont even mind making it so many times and also the ingredients are really basic that can always be found at home! This cake is so perfectly delicious, the rum gives a unique flavour to the otherwise basic sponge and also because of the apples they feel fresh and easy on the stomach not like a heavier brownie or bday cake :)))

Easy and delicious. Great tips in the directions. We made it for a special thanksgiving breakfast but I think we will also take it for dessert to family get together

my husband claimed he doesn't like this cake, yet upon my return to the kitchen I found my husband had eaten over half of the cake! I made a butter rum sauce and topped the cake off with whip cream. I was pleased with the results.

So simple and surprisingly delicious. Ice Cream puts it over the top.

First time making this and it turned out so very good. Cooking time was about 32 min for my oven. I made it with 2 tbsp of milk and it could have used 3....very very good.
