It was the best cake I've ever had! Its so sweet and delicious. Very moist and not very hard to make. I used one honeycrisp apple and a granny smith apple. Definitely a make again!

great and very moist
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.

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.

Turned out well & great taste, but needed a little something. Warm butter run sauce did the trick! Perfect!
