"I created an account to leave a review for this specific recipe! Needed to use up a bunch of Granny Smith apples and came across this. Read the prior reviews , so decreased sugar to 1.5 cups and didn't use the frosting. This is an extremely delicious cake. Not too sweet, very moist, and easy to prepare. Definitely a keeper! Thanks for sharing!"
"Very good. I used granny smith apples. Nice and moist and tastes excellent. I didn't do the cream cheese frosting. I sprinkled powdered sugar on the top."
"Very moist and delicious!!! You will not regret making this! I use Macintosh apples, and they soften up very nicely!!!"
"Love it! It's a crowd hit!"
"This cake was so delicious! I didn't make the frosting however, and simply drizzled a simple glaze over the top."
