Reviews for Apple-Raisin Bundt Cake
"I did everything as written except subbed out the butter for 3/8C mashed banana (which for me was about 1 banana). It didn't affect the overall taste TOO much, but we could still taste just a bit of the banana flavor. Not sure if it's because of that substitution, but this cake was THICK. It's like a thick bread, or a fruit cake. It still tastes delicious though!! Next time if I use banana again I will cut back a bit on the sugar. I believe I used a Fuji apple, and 1 medium apple was enough for the 3/4C. Also, I will cut down on the raisins and add in more apple next time. I baked mine for about 54 minutes (our oven runs a bit hot). The glaze was also perfect for this dish. I had to add just a bit more milk to get it to the right consistency. Maybe next time I'll try adding in vanilla or rum extract to the glaze. I will make this again!Update: This was so thick and so sugary we didn't wind up eating all of it. I think if I cut back on the sugar quite a bit, it will be a lot more appetizing. Probably a better dessert for winter as well, with how heavy it is. I'd still rate it 5 stars since it's delicious!"
"this cake is to die for"
"Excellent. Reminds me a bit of fruitcake ( a good one)"
"I made the bread a day early and it was perfect the day of the brunch. The left overs even tasted great 4 days later!"
"I had some extra apples that needed using and came across this recipe and gave it a try. It was wonderful--easy and tasty. My mom liked it so well she has requested it for her birthday this year."
