A little too sweet for me. The caramel and the added sugar from the pudding put the sweet factor over the top. Basically it just tastes like a yellow cake with bits of mushy cooked apple with caramel on top. It is moist, but would be better if apples were lightly cooked and served on the side rather than inside the cake. Might need some spices or nuts to improve my rating. The concept sounds delicious, but the result is lacking.
