Ratings & Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from This recipe was good, but it did not live up to what was written in the other reviews. This recipe was good, but it did not live up to what was written in the other reviews. Similar to the other reviews, my cake also stuck to the pan. I think that the apples were really too heavy to be suspended in the cake. I did like the flavors of the cake. Next time I'd try to do it with only 1 chopped up apple, and add in the walnuts like in the other reviews. This cake also tasted better after it sat for 2 days, and it definetly needs the sweet glaze.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Slight changes. Slight changes. Used 1/2 cup applesauce and 1/3 stick butter for oil. Used apple nectar instead of water. Oh My, my family loved it. Even for breakfast it is good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This cake didn't even last an entire day at my house. This cake didn't even last an entire day at my house. Kids and adults ate and ate until it was gone. Will definately make again. I used apple pie filling because I was too lazy to peel and chop fresh apples but it was very delicious.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My husband chose this recipe for his Birthday cake. My husband chose this recipe for his Birthday cake. It was delicious. I used Roma apples because that's what I had on hand. I did have the problem with the cake sticking but I think it was due to the fact that I didn't get enough cooking spray in the pan. I would definitely make this again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This is a good cake. This is a good cake. Made it for two family Thanksgiving desserts and everyone liked it. First time made it per recipe. Second time, used one less apple, added 3/4 cup pecans and more cinnamon (1+1/2 tsp). Liked it much better the second time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from DELICIOUS! DELICIOUS!!! Moist, and yummy! I too modified a bit. Used 1/2 cup greek yogurt, and 1/3 cup butter in place of oil - that's it though, and everyone exclaimed it was my best cake ever.........Thank you Kraft : )

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fall treat for dessert Very good and very easy to prepare. A hit at my work in the break room! I used canned apples that were probably Granny Smith variety. I also used melted butter instead of oil and extra cinnamon, and French vanilla pudding mix. My cake pan was empty by the late afternoon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This was one of the best cakes I have ever made! This was one of the best cakes I have ever made! Very easy. I used red apples and used the juice of 1 whole lemon on the chopped apples before I put them in the batter. I also added cinnamon to icing. It cake out so unbelievably most! I brought it to a dinner party and the entire cake was eaten.
