    I baked this for a meeting. Everyone really liked it alot. I did however, have to apply baking experience know- how to come out with a great tasting product that looks just as appetizing. I cut cinnamon in half. Beat in eggs one at a time , alternate dry ingred. with the milk. Take the time to spread batter even and to all corners of pan---spoon apple little by little over batter then spread even with a spatula. Crumble b. sugar with clean hands slowly over cake and spoon (i used baby spoon) butter over the topping. Great!!! A keepee.  -  27 Mar 2000  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This cake is very good. I have also used peach pie filling instead of the apple pie filling and it came out just as well.You don't have to go thru peeling apples or peaches.  -  25 Mar 2000  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    2 cans of pie filling as others suggested would kill this recipe almost for sure...I would do what I did,and just slice up 2 extra apples.That made it perfect along with a splash of vanilla to the batter...I thought this was totally sinful-like pie topped cake-very good!!!Will make again for sure-way to go AUNT DEE.  -  08 Feb 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
