    Deeply disappointed with this cake. Mind you, it is an excellent cake, moist and nicely spiced but just not as appley as I expected it to be. It is just a glorified apple sauce cake. I probably did not reduce my apple mixture enough because I had quite a bit left over and I used honey crisp apples. None the less, I'm happy I tried this recipe, it allowed me to use my latest thrift store find, a Nordic Heritage bundt pan for $5. ETA: the leftover apple sauce was absolutely delicious, no need to add sweetener, just wonderful.

    A little bit of a project. I used a tart apple from New York. The batter before the addition of flour tastes amazing. It lost a bit of apple flavor during the bake. We had a piece still warm and the crumb is amazing. I baked it 45 minutes. My family gave it 5 stars but I give it 4. I will make again but I would definitely bake the purée longer this time. I baked 45 minutes and although it looked like stiff whipped cream I had about double the amount of purée left over. I wonder/ hope it would make a difference in the amount of apple flavor once baked

    To be completely honest, this cake takes a lot of work: primarily with cooking down the apples. However, if you use very flavorful (and tart) apples, the resulting cake is absolutely enchanting and appley. My friends were first wondering about the flavor of the cake, then they took a bite immediately hit with the intense apple notes. Next time I'd top this with an apple cider caramel sauce.
