“This originated during the Depression when staples were scarce, but I made a few changes to make it healthier and add zip. Everyone who eats it requests the recipe. It's great for cold weather and travels well.” Christine Holmes - Mineral, Virginia

MY REVIEW 254491
Reviewed Sep. 22, 2016

"I followed all the recipe (after spending $15 on ingredients I didn't have) and placed them in muffin pans because I didn't have a bundt pan. They didn't seem to cook all the way through at the time described so I stuck them back in the oven even though the tops were crisp. Even after cooking 20 more minutes the middle didn't seem done but I thought maybe they just had to cool to harden. After 20 minutes of cooling I checked them again and bit into it and they are soggy all the way through the middle and taste gross because of it. I had to through them all out. I'm assuming it's too much liquid or apples. I really don't think a different pan would have made a difference either. Really disappointed and wasted money on buying things like $5 raisins and it took almost the whole box. Will not make again!"
