      Yay!!! That’s so great to hear!!

    I prefer to make my cakes dairy-free, so I usually use oil instead of butter. In this instance, I used applesauce which gave me a moist cake with a great apple flavour throughout.

      Fantastic!

    This is a very easy to put together butter cake with apples! Turned out a beautiful cake! I sprinkled some cinnamon on the second layer of apple slices before the flaked almonds and I quickly sliced the pre-peeled apples as I layered the batter so the apples stayed white! Took a little longer to bake in my oven at 325F for a full 55 minutes. Will make this again!

      Fantastic!!! xx

    Really good recipe and easy to make. Looks impressive compared to the skill level. =) I made two of these cakes this weekend (one for boyfriend’s office, one for mine), and got rave reviews! Someone asked my boyfriend where he bought it, actually!

    We ran out of vanilla extract so I substituted almond instead, and it was delicious!!

    I think I might spice it up next time with more sugar on the top or a bourbon glaze or something like that.

      Thank you so much!!!
