    Family consensus was this is just ok and not a keeper. Made as directed. I did make sure to whisk custard mixture (eggs, sugar, cream) until it was well blended and smooth before pouring over. Cake was done at 40 minutes. We served it after 20 minutes resting. It baked up nicely and looked pretty on the table. The custard had set along the bottom which we expected based on experience. The cake had a nice texture -- no one complained -- even the one that doesn't always like nuts in cakes. The comments were that it just had no "yum" factor, and the various tastes (apples, cake, custard) just didn't combine in a way that impressed. My husband (who is great cook) said it might have been better with sweeter apples? I did try it cold the next day -- and also reheated, but it still did not excite. Too bad. It was easy to put together.

    Very dry and dense - custard all went to bottom of cake - very disappointed - will not make again

    Texture-wise, this is more of a bread pudding than a coffee cake. Served warm with a topping of whipped cream it makes an excellent dessert. Would be good for breakfast, too.
