"Perfect for dessert or brunch, these rich apple mini cakes are irresistible, served with a steaming cup of coffe. I make them often when I have fresh apples from our small orchard," Mary Shivers writes from Ada, Oklahoma.
"This recipe was given to me years ago," writes Wendy Keys from Reno, Nevada. "I love it and used to make it often, but haven't done so in a while because of its high fat and calorie count. Can you help?" Our Test Kitchen lightened up her original recipe for this healthier version that tastes even more delicious than the original. How sweet is that?
Drizzled with warm caramel sauce, this classic and comforting, old-fashioned dessert is an heirloom recipe. “It was passed down from my Great-Aunt Syd,” writes Anne Livingston from Evanston, Illinois. “It’s so good in wintertime and no one ever guesses it’s as light as it is!”
Chopped pecans make an easy but elegant substitute in this recipe.
This wholesome treat is loaded with healthy ingredients, including apples, raisins, cranberries and walnut. There's plenty of flavor in every moist bite, and it comes together in minutes.

Complete with apples, walnuts, brown sugar and a dash of allspice, slices of this moist cake are perfect with coffee. Not many coffee cakes are baked in a springform pan but, in this case, the results are incredible. —David Heppner of Brandon, Florida
