thought for something more tart
made this cake for a church tea and it turned out perfect......a lovely cup of coffee cake to serve with a cup of tea. I had no problem putting the butter in the eggs & frosting or puréeing the apples. I also had to make my own icing, as I didn't have graham crackers or other crackers I could have used. What I did have was a very nice cupcake - it was drizzled with a nice frosting and I made careful note of the baking time. Thanks for a nice recipe.
I absolutely love this cake - in fact, I made it last weekend - but I had no idea that grapes could be so yummy! I added the juice of two juiced cherries (because I had few) to make a grapefruit-flavored lite tea. Wow - not even grapes could save this from falling apart! I thought (and still think) that maybe the addition of a couple teaspoons of almond extract might help, but the combination this roasting pan suggested was just too ketchupy for me. Will definitely make this again, but in the future, I'll only use half apple.
I made this recipe last week, and I put it in a 9x13 cake pan sprayed with cooking spray. Why? Because I realized I forgot to add the eggs, and that left me with two eggless cakes. I put the batter in a large bowl, and stirred it around. I fed this into a roaster, and it baked perfectly. No need to add eggs.
