Reviews forWalnut Apple Cake
"Great recipe to use apples! Tasty cake, even without sauce. Glad directions pointed out that batter is stiff before adding apples. Pours easily after the addition. As a volunteer feild editor with Taste of Home magazine I love recipes that use classic ingredients to provide quick and flavorful food!"
"Big hit at our house. Our neighbors son wants one for his graduating party and one for himself !"
"10/3/14 Made this last night for me and hubby- so good - thanks for sharing - only half left and it isn't even 24 hours yet...:)"
"I absolutely love this cake! So moist, and not too sweet or rich- I could eat a whole pan. And the sauce gives it that "milk and cookies" vibe, you have to have one with the other. I shredded the tart apples so there are no surprise chunks :)"
"I baked it for 50 min. and it tested done but was gooey. The flavor of the cake was good but didn't care for the sauce."
