    Delicious! I made some adjustments like I mixed my Granny Smith, Gala, and Mac apples I chopped them and left the skin on I also subbed Greek Yogurt for the milk and doubled the topping I also added extra cinnamon and a dash of nutmeg - I cut the cake in half and will keep half for my family and give the other half (pictured) to another family

    Great! I did make it differently though. Instead of buttermilk I use pumpkin spice eggnog and no apples. I added cinnamon and nutmeg. It was delicious

    Made this cake today with my favorite apples. My search is over!!! I’ve been searching for a recipe that would taste like one my MOM made when I was a child ( my mom was a wonderful cook that never cooked or baked following written recipes ) This cake was DELICIOUS and I will include it in my FAVORITE RECIPES. Thank you! ❌⭕️❌⭕️

    The topping was great however I have a sweet tooth so I would prefer the actual cake to have more sweetness to it with it why I added a bit of condensed milk to it.

    I add nutmeg. I would like to know if you could use Pamela’s for gluten free people

    It turned out great. I accidentally added a lot more cinnamon to the topping than the recipe called for, but it turned out amazing anyway. I'll probably do the same next time too.

    Amazing! Super moist, hard to screw up (as directions suggest), and I took the advice of using a bit less sugar and it was still super delish! Oh, and I might have made some cream cheese icing for the those who needed a glutinous topper — oops ;)

    I wanted to use up gala apples and not go to the store and this recipe came up. I extra apples and lots of cinnamon in the batter and the topping ( my family love cinnamon). I think the recipe would benefit from more tangy apples which I might try next time.

    Easy to make and moist but lacking in flavour; needs more apples and cinnamon!

    Delicious! Very large though, so lots of left overs, which is not good for my waist. Will definitely make again.
