I've made this cake several times now and it is wonderful. I decided to followed the directions exactly and not change anything on the first try. It was very good, but we like spicy, so the second time I added a little less than 1 cup of raisins and upped the cinnamon to about 2 tsp, added about a tsp of cloves, it was delicious! I make a Pecan Praline Sauce and pour it over each piece while both are still warm...it's soooo yummie! or a simple sprinkling of powdered sugar. It's moist, delish and very easy to make. This cake can and will also stand alone, no problem!!!
gotta make this for work!
I think this was to gummie. looks great and wasn't very sweet.
I made this for a church breakfast. I did not care for it. I think it maybe the nutmeg. It had a strange taste and the apples tasted like raisins. I did use splenda sugar blend. Maybe that's why it tasted strange. I want to try it again using sugar and eliminating the nutmeg
VERY, VERY GOOD. I added more pecans, just beacause or family LOVES pecans. I will pass this one on to others.
You can substitute brown sugar instead of white granulated sugar or splenda. This will be much healthier, and enjoyed by everyone.
Apples and cinnamon always go good together and since I love all kinds of nuts the pecans really made it perfect. Plan to make it again and if I don't have pecans will try it with another kind of nut.
