"APPLES WERE plentiful in our area, so they were the staple of many of the desserts served at our table. This apple recipe was one of my mom's favorites. Today, it reigns supreme in our family as the choice dessert. Warm or cold, it's a treat every time!"

"I made this cake with some leftover apples we had lying around. This cake is moist and flavorful and a snap to make. It's also yummy to have for breakfast. I highly recommend it!"

"Fabulous recipe. Would make it again any time. It's good hot, cold, with nothing or anything on top! Sprinkle a little cinn/sugar on top to get a crispy sweet crust. Very moist. My entire office loved it. A keeper for years to come."

"I wasn't that impressed with this recipe.. The cake was moist, but relatively uneventful. For me, the ice cream is what makes this dessert (and I'm not sure that's the point).."

"I used icing from my regular apple cake recipe to frost this so it wouldn't be so dry. My guests liked it, but I'll stick with my reg. recipe."
