    This was an amazing recipe. I altered it a little bit, but it won a cooking contest at a party!  -  18 Jul 2008

    This is one fantastic, easy cake. I didn't, however, buy dried apples, I just peeled the apples, sliced, and cooked over med. heat until they mashed into homemade applesauce (while the cakes were baking). It is super easy, I am glad I have a powerful kitchen-aid, the batter is dough like and would be hard to stir!  -  20 Oct 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
