Just okay, it's a different type of batter, not like a cake, not like a muffin but more like a biscuit. Texture is terrible, only thing saving it from going in the trash is how much I spent baking it!

I've made this for so many Thanksgiving breakfasts, that it's become our family tradition. My adult children expect, and look forward to it when they come home. Great recipe!!

I have made this many times and is always a hit at Thanksgiving and Christmas. I use a large rather than medium tart apple which enhances the moistness of this cake.

I made this for the holidays using fresh cranberries. It was very good and moist! Very nice for a brunch.
