    The cake is absolutely brilliant but I did find the icing really sweet. I think the cake would be very nice with just an icing sugar dusting.  -  04 Sep 2012


    This was a very easy recipe to make and tastey as well. I took the advice of others and doubled the apples, which made it very thick, but good. Almost bread like. I omitted the nuts as no one at my house likes nuts. Was moist and the icing was good, not too sweet, as canned icing can be. Next time I would add more cinnamon and maybe more vanilla next time for extra flavor, but I would make again.  -  01 Jul 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This was really tasty- but I wish someone would have mentioned how QUICKLY the cake browns on top. I kept taking it out because I thought it was going to burn on top, but apparently it's normal, because it tasted great. I will try it again, now that I know I don't have to watch it so closely.  -  13 May 2004  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
