I have just Made this cake, I put more apples in as I love them (have allot on my tree)
I did cook the cake for a little longer, turning down the heat for a further 10 minutes.
Wow its amazing
I made this cake today and found a couple of things about it I may change if making again.
There are a LOT of apples in it and I felt the sheer quantity prevented the whole cake rising as it should and affected the shape when turning it out. It is a delicious cake, I won't deny that but I think if I make it again I'll be reducing the amount of apple to 300g as opposed to the 450g.
I've made this cake several times and I keep having to make it as requested by friends! I didn't have cooking apples so I substituted 2 eating apples and made the rest of the weight of apples up with raisins or mixed fruit and some chocolate chips! I also added two teaspoons of cinnamon. I like double the amount of sugar on top too as it makes a lovely topping. I thought it was undercooked the first time I made it, but once it cools it is lovely and moist. A real hit!
This is a delicious cake! A real hit with Family & Friends
Just made this cake, bit of a mistake cooked at 180 in fan oven rather than 160 so by time 45 mins elapsed was already a bit brown!! Also it seemed to be swimming in butter - is this right??
This is thee best apple cake and so easy to make! Top Marks
Disaster! After an hour the cake was still liquid. Not sure what went wrong really, but maybe too much butter.
I made this cake yesterday, and have to say that despite having to guess the measurements because my scales broke, my critics (three friends who came round for tea) were suitably impressed! I added a bit of cinnamon too as I like the combo. Thought that after an hour it still didn't seem cooked but actually I think it worked being a bit squidgy!
Yep to the flour the almonds are for texture and flavour, you'll never know unless you try. Thats what cooking is about, doing it your own way! This cake is super yummy!!!
I wouldn't advise changing it as baking recipes especially usually need to be accurate to work and this has been tested to work as is. If you don't like the amount of almonds try a different apple or cake recipe. There are loads of great ones on this site. Good luck.
If I didn't put the almonds in do you think I could just put more flour in?
This has got to be the bast last minute cake ever., all the ingredients are stuff that you always have home.
It is a clear winner for me
This cake is so easy to make and is gorgeous. Great on it's own, with custard, cream or ice-cream.
