This tender, moist cake is full of old-fashioned comfort, and the yummy brown sugar sauce makes it special. For a festive occasion, top with a dollop of whipped cream. —Debi Benson, Bakersfield, California

"Great for fall"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 11, 2014

"A great apple cake that is nice and juicy! The Butterscotch sauce adds a delectable flavor to this wonderful fall cake! Don't worry if the batter looks quite thick - the juice from the apples helps it cook perfectly!"

"Best apple cake ever! I remember when this won the apple contest."

MY REVIEW

"This was excellent. I tried stirring the apples in for a few seconds and then just used my hands. I will definitely make this again."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 1, 2014

"Delicious! I used close to 5 cups of chopped apples and it still seemed like a lot. I used a caramel whiskey sauce because I already had some made up and a dollop of home made whipping cream and oh was it good! I will make the butterscotch sauce the next time. And as another person said the cake stands on its own. I myself loved the texture of the flaky crunch on top of the cake. My husband loves anything baked with apples in it and this one was a big hit!"
