    This recipe is pretty good. My apple cake turned out very tasty indeed. Very sweet, and the vanilla compliments the apple perfectly. Note, that if you use a 30cm tin, this comes out very flat, like a pizza. Well, it did for me. It is pretty easy to prepare, although peeling and slicing the apples takes patience. The thinner the apple slices the better, so best use a potato peeler or similar, rather than a knife.  -  05 Sep 2012  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
