I tried out THIS recipe today.
Surprisingly, it didn't turn out the way I thought it would- a first for any recipe I have tried from Southern Plate and Christy.
I have a whole list of cakes I make every year and this is the first ever cake recipe I have seen with apples in it. I had hoped to add it to my Cake List for this holiday season, but as it stands, it didn't quite measure up to my standards.(Sorry, Christy- but as I said- it's definitely a FIRST!)
What was wrong with it, you ask?...
The cake was a bit too oily tasting and the sauce was too buttery. I'm going to have to tweak it a bit and make it with a bit less oil in the cake and then work the sauce so it tastes a bit more like caramel sauce to go with the apples in the cake.
GREAT idea....... it just needs a bit of tweaking.
I'll post a revised Recipe when it's tweaked to Perfection for me.
