MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 21, 2011

This was the worst cake I have ever made. My advice to you: "Never make it." "Ever". When I tried to cream the butter and sugar, it did not come out light and fluffy, probably because the submitter forgot how much sugar was really supposed to go in the recipe. There was not enough flour in it. I followed the recipe exactly and after baking it the exact time it told me to, I took it out, cooled it and attempted to dump in on a plate. The batter oozed out in streams and the apples dumped with it. I tried to bake it twice as long and it came out brown and wet. Never try this. I wasted an entire night and tons of ingredients.
