WAY TOO MUSHY, SOFT, WEIRD TEXTURE....I did everything right according to the recipe and I threw it away. It was a true waste of time, energy and money.
This was a big hit and quick and easy to make. I must admit I used a little extra brandy replacing a little of the apple juice with brandy. This cake was moist and flavorful and makes a great presentation. I will make this again!
I made this for Thanksgiving and it taste good! I didn't have any brandy so I tried it with rum. One of my friends asked me to make her one I gave it to her yesterday and she has already eaten half! I do recommend you chop the apples up really small, it made neater cuts.
made it for a church harvest supper. It was a big hit and also easy.
I tried this because it was an apple cake that wasn't the usual spice cake. It was good and pleasant to eat, but no one, including me, noticed any brandy flavor in the cake or glaze. I used cider and brandy in the cake and glaze (not juice and flavoring.) The apple pieces sank in the batter, ending up on the top of the cake. This was fine except that with all the fruit concentrated in the bottom of the pan, part of the cake stuck in the pan. The appearance was spoiled--not good if I had made it for a special occasion. To avoid this, toss the chopped apple with just a bit of flour (1-2 tsp) before mixing into the batter.
This is a very good cake, very flavorful and not too sweet.

Let’s be honest – I’m always looking for quick meal ideas. By the time I get home from work, I have about a half hour to throw dinner together and get it on the table. Most (okay, ALL of the time) I have an unhappy one-year-old pulling at my leg as if to say, “Mom, why is there not food on my high chair tray yet?!” So, when it comes to meals, the quicker the better.
Bring the bold flavors of
ginger and sesame to a
variety of meals.
You know the old saying, “I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream,” right? Well, ice cream is a favorite, but if there is any summertime sweet treat that I find to be scream-worthy , it is, hands down, the s’more. More ...
