A family and friend favorite! Love this and truly my go to fall dessert recipe! So sorry the one star ⭐ didn't have a good experience. Agreed it must be the oven.
The anonymous reviewer who gave a one star rating obviously undercooked the cake. Either her/his oven is malfunctioning or directions were not followed. Rather than blame a recipe made successfully by tens of thousands of bakers for many decades, they should look to their own mishandling of it.
I absolutely love this recipe & I’m not really a fan of apples. The apples with the cake & cream cheese frosting just blend so well. I think I’ve made this recipe once a week since finding it.
This recipe is both easy to prepare and simply delicious! The cake turned out moist yet firm. A big hit with my customers. Thanks, Southern Living!
First off, this cake is amazing. Just a few simple ingredients, easy to make. I find that the cake is best after it sits in the refrigerator a full day, with the cream cheese frosting on it, with the pecans on top. The flavors just meld together perfectly.
I followed the recipe and its crunchy on the outside and a gooey mess on the inside. It does not have a cake-like texture, and it's way to sweet. It's going in the garbage.
