Thank you so much! Worked perfectly. Thank You for a great recipe…. Hope you enjoy! If so, I have conversions to weight for most of my recipes. I made it for my Erev Rosh Hashanah dinner and added cinnamon to the batter and sprinkled it on top. Hi Andrea, you can replace the rum with apple juice or apple cider. To eat after frozen, thaw briefly, covered, in the microwave. Two, I left out the rum entirely. Thanks! My wife loved it too! When I found this recipe, I had no idea I was starting a tradition of my own. Wonderful cake, didn’t change a thing with original recipe. forms: { From now on I’ll stick to my cookbooks. Great recipe for kids to help with, too. In addition I added 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon for the aromatic smell/spice. I will definitely make this again. Definitely YUM! Perfect flavor, perfect texture and rave reviews from my guests!! Next time we will just measure out 3 cups. Check out this chart from King Arthur Flour for metric conversions. Yes, Terry, I think that should work. Hi Patricia, both recipes actually have conversion to metric measurements. Any type of rum — even spiced rum — will work here. Hi Nova, You can replace with apple cider. It was an instant hit in my house! Straight from my tree to “your” cake – absolutely light and delicious! We loved it! Thanks Jenn – you’re amazing too! I’ve made this delicious cake many times! Have made several times and it has come out perfectly every time. If you move it from “cup measures” to metric, you’ll see measurements that will work for you. Can I sub either Pimms liqueur or Kahlua for the rum? The apples, when chopped, should yield 3.5 – 4 cups. This cake was delicious! I’m also tempted to try and use Irish cream! When I used to find recipes on other sites it used to print 3 pages of adds that could not be removed.. This recioe looks amazing. It is my favorite recipe of apple cake. one that I would make again and again. It’s light and delicate, and delicious!! I made this recipe a few weeks ago with a tweak. I made this for my father’s 83rd birthday. Add two pots of flour & one of sugar. ❤️. Will definitely be making this a lot. I find myself in Maine, with some wild blueberries left over from mid-summer calling me from the freezer. Excellent recipe, thanks for sharing. Hi Kate, I don’t recommend it for this recipe. I reduced the sugar by a smidgen to 112 grams because most recipes often are too sweet for me. Eat it slightly warm with ice cream, cream or custard. Hope you enjoy! Following is my husband’s reaction: Husband: This is great! We typically serve with whipped cream. Each time it came out great … wonderfully simple & tasty. Hi Jenn, Can I use caster sugar for the creaming process, or is it best to use regular granulated sugar as specified? Just finished making it and I’m on my second slice. However cake did not turn out dry. Maybe I should make your scones to keep me occupied . The cake was a hit! Cooked for 40 mins with the oven set to conventional. You help to make cooking less intimidating, and more fun. There is NO cake today because my picky-preteen boys ate it all! Actually your whole website is so easy to navigate and follow instructions now when i need to cook something I never have. After I leveled out the batter in the spring form pan I arranged my sliced apples in the center sort of in a pinwheel shape for decoration. Thanks to other reviewers, the first time I made it was with spiced apple cider and the next time with dark rum. With the simplest ingredients! It is quick to make and absolutely delicious. I’m so happy I found it because I’ll definitely be making it again. This apple cake is my “little black dress” of desserts! The key to this cake is combining the room temperature butter with the sugar to a light fluff! PS: have also done this with pears for a great result.
