MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 16, 2014

This cake smells great while it's baking. It's not quite as pretty as a pineapple upsidedown cake, but it tastes pretty good.

MY REVIEW

This is absolutely wonderful. I lost my recipe and needed to get it again.

Love this recipe. Have had this one clipped forever and finally made it. I used Granny Smiths for the apples and pumpkin flavored chi for the tea and it was delicious and very moist. A perfect fall dessert.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 15, 2013

This was really enjoyed by guests. I was deceived by my toothpick test, it was underdone in the middle. Well worth making again, flavor was wonderful; but I will scrutinize my toothpick next time!
