Reviews for Caramel Apple Coffee Cake
"I found this recipe in one of my Taste of Home cookbooks. It is so good! I didn't have any apples so I used a pint of Apple Pie filling that I canned this year. The soaked-in topping really makes it yummy. This cake may be high in calories but it is a very tasty splurge that I would recommend."
"I can't wait to make this. My question to those that have made it: considering there is no butter in the batter, is the cake moist? I love my coffee cakes to have the taste of butter to them. I'm thinking the apples do supply some moisture to the cake."
"I baked this wonderful cake for twelve women---all great cooks. Each and everyone of them requested the recipe before leaving. It is not a pretty cake----it is a delicious cake!!!!!!! I served it with a dollop of whipping cream. I gave this a five star rating but it is not posting .....don't know why."
"Finally tried this cake recipe....yummy and the neighbors loved it too!"
"This is one of my favorite cake recipes, in fact I've added it to my repertoire for my little bakery business. I make it in mini bundt cake pans and package them up individually--absolutely yummy!Whether a whole cake or mini one, it never fails to get rave reviews!"
