    Very easy and very good. Wonderful for breakfast or dessert. It will be one of my favorite apple recipes. I did add an extra apple and mine were not Fuji. I also substituted current jelly for the apricot preserves since that those were the ingredients I had on hand.

    Beyond excellent. Not only is this super easy to make, but such a crowd pleaser. I make this often as my guests just LOVE it...

    OMG! I snuck a bite as this came out of the oven, it is VERY good!! I could see this becoming a Christmas or Thanksgiving must-have. I added a little more cream cheese to use it up, and stopped after the step of placing the apple slices on top (didn't add the 2tbsp butter or preserves & juice recipe called for to keep fat & sugar lower)--I also add half the sugar the entire recipe called for and you can't even tell. Another great CL recipe!!

    I had this the first time the other evening at my CL Supper Club and immediately bought the ingredients to make it for my family. It is so light and delicious. I think I will plan to do this one more in the fall when the apples are plentiful. I believe that you could easily substitute another baking apple.

    This is delicious! I used 2 apples and 1 pear, but followed the rest of the recipe as written. It's somewhat reminiscent of a coffee cake, but good enough for dessert.

    I was amazed at how good this cake tasted. I made it exactly as instructed, no substitutions, no cuts. Everyone loved it. The only thing I might change next time is the type of apple. Fuji apples just don't get very soft. They stay quite crunchy. I would prefer an apple that gets softer with baking, maybe a Braeburn, Granny Smith or McIntosh.

    Delicious and fairly easy. To cut carbs and fat I made few reductions in ingredients with no discernible change in outcome: sugar in the cake cut from 3/4 cup to 1/2 cup, sugar in the apples cut from 1/4 cup to a generous Tbsp., butter brushed over the apples cut to 1 Tbs. The apricot preserves provided plenty of sweetness to the apples. Next time I will use four apples for a more generous topping.
