My husband and I came to Canada over 40 years ago from Holland. This traditional Dutch recipe is a family favorite and frequently goes along with me to potluck suppers and other get-togethers. —Elizabeth Peters, Martintown, Ontario

I have been making this cake for years and have always gotten rave reviews. I've never made any changes because we love it just the way it is . It is always so moist and flavorful. For those of you who say it has no flavor - HELLO!! It's supposed to taste like apples. And the more the better. I also pour the extra juice from the apples over the top. It's also great with whipped cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon. I can't say enough good things about this cake. My family requests it frequently.

MY REVIEW

This is a wonderful old fashioned recipe. I saw some negative reviews and wanted to add my opinion. I feel the negative comments are coming from those that have failed to thoroughly mix their batter or hadn't used enough apples. Dutch apple cake is really meant to focus on the apples and should be used with a good, tart apple and FULL of them. Cram as many in as possible!! I did add a little spiced rum to my apples with the cinnamon And sugar which I thought made a huge difference and so simple. Lovely recipe.
