    This cake is delicious and fillng!
    I've also made it with 2 cups of grated zucchinis instead of apples and cut back the sugar by using 2/3 cup of sugar instead of 1 for a nice breakfast cake. Thanks

    I absolutely love this cake!!!! Its so moist and had so much flavor! I indulged a little and add a little cool whip frosting. It was the perfect complement because it was really light as well. Very good! - 2/5/10

    I cooked mine in a glass dish and I think it cooked faster. It was done in 40 minutes and I think it was actually a little dry. It was a decent amount of cake for 177 cals (18 slices and my ingredients). Thanks! - 3/21/07

    Very good! I used butter (what I had) slightly less sugar, 2 apples and a cup of shredded zuccini (also what I had.) I was using a glass dish also, so I kept an eye on it. The cooking time was quicker (I am also at sea level) but it was moist and superb! - 9/19/10

    Rule of thumb, if changing from metal to glass cookware, lower oven by 25 degrees. Done it many times and it works. - 9/27/10

    Delicious! I talked my 6 year-old into this as a birthday cake. He wanted to decorate it, so buttercream frosting made it not quite so healthy, but the whole family loved it (the kids actually ate the cake and not just the frosting!) I will definitely make this again, sans the buttercream! - 1/17/08

  • This cake was delicious and so moist. I followed the directions exactly and this was the best. I took some to work and they didn't last long in the office. Loved the chunks of apple! Making this again! - 5/11/12

  • This did not "pour" as suggested, but rather had to spoon it into the pan, as it was really thick. Still, it was very good. - 1/29/12

  • Okay, I did use butter and added oat flour and 1/2 ww flour, and brown sugar, but OMG it was delicious! The most tender, lite and flavorful cake of it's kind! I actually made small bread loaves out of it and will give them away. Healthy and delicious! Very delicate though. Wrap with care... - 10/4/11

  • This was awesome! I made it exactly as the recipe said but baked it in a bundt pan. Then I made a quick glaze out of 1 c. powdered sugar, 2 tsp lemon juice, 1 tsp vanilla, & 2 tbsp milk. It got rave reviews at church and from my husband. - 9/27/11

  • I made this recipe today. It was straightforward; most of the time was in peeling, coring and chopping the apples. It is great and I'm sure I'll use it yearly when our apple tree gives us its fruit. - 9/28/10

  • I used half splenda half sugar, and only 3 apples (and even that seems like a little much), and it turned out great. I used glass pan as well, and it seemed to be done in 40 minutes. - 9/20/10
