    excellent

    megan from tallahassee, fl

    I used a can of apple pie filling and used an assortment of nuts (brazilian, hazelnut, walnut, and pecan). The cake made the house smell wonderful and the cake was so moist and delicious - excellent recipe!!

    Delicious

    LaVeda from Grandview, MO

    This cake was very easy to make. It turned out so moist and delicious. I was not able to find the Stouffer's apples, so I used the canned. I took the cake to work, and everyone gave it a thumbs up. I will definitely make this cake again and again.

    Appleicious!

    Linda Swanson from Buckeye State

    Very simply to make yet tastes like you slaved over it! Made this for the first time for a breakfast gathering and it was a huge hit. I've made it several times since then and people are always asking for the recipe!

    Very easy and tasty

    Mary from Richmond, VA

    This was an easy recipe to prepare. I also did not use the Stouffers apples because I did not have them on hand. I used a 21 oz can of apple pie filling, doubled the streusel(minus the nuts) and added a little extra cinnamon and some nutmeg..smells good and baked great. Took it to a potluck lunch and it was half gone when I left..I'm sure its gone by now! I will make it again..

    Easy recipe to prepare. Very moist, tasty and too tempting to only have one piece.

    WOW!!!!

    Dahiana from oceanside CA

    I love this so much. I have made it with the harvest apples and with the apple pie filling when i'm short on time. Both were delicious! I usually make it when i'm having a potluck brunch with my church group. Is usually gone quickly and if there are pieces left other people usually fight over them!!! Definately a keeper!!!!

    Moist and Tasty!

    Theresa Houser from Charlotte, NC

    I previously was of the mindset that if it started with a cake mix, it wasn't homemade. Recipies like this are slowly changing my mind! It's amazing what you can do with a few additions. I used apple cinnamon instant oatmeal because that's all I had on hand and it came out great! Very moist, and very flavorful. Definitely a keeper!

    Its A Winner

    Alan from Hamilton, OH

    Yea, this one is pretty good. I used real apples instead of brand name pack. The double layer streusel is what makes it a winner. Not too difficult or time consuming either.

    huge family hit

    janet borys from roseville, mi

    Our extended family thoroughly enjoyed your apple breakfast cake. It is delicious and yet so easy to prepare. Since I couldn't locate stouffer's apples, I made up an apple filling of my own and substituted it. Thanks for all of your great ideas.

    Easy and Great!

    Cheryl Meredith from Houston, TX

    This cake was wonderful - everyone loved it! I used apple pie filling instead of the frozen apples and it turned out moist and flavorful. Everyone asked for seconds on this cake!

    Housewife

    Diana from Hayward,WI

    This is a Excellent for breakfast or a dersert....Hubby really love it....I used fresh cooked apples instead of using pie filling or Stouffer's frozen apples. Apples here in WI are great at this time of yr. Thank you coming out with this recipe. It's big hit in our family !!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Awesome

    Linda from Fargo

    I made this dessert this evening and it was awesome. I gave some to our neighbors and also loved it. My son who is picky when it comes to food loved it. I used Apple Pie filling because I could not find the frozen ones. Keep up the great work!!!

    YUM

    Kandace Poole from Anderson, IN

    This recipe was fantastic..... I have to agree that the topping isn't enough though, I added more oatmeal and brown sugar.

  •  Star(s)

    Fantastic!

    Heather from

    I made this recipe for a meeting at work and it was fantastic! I used 21 oz. of pie filling instead of the Harvest apples. It turned out very moist and delicious. I had several people ask for the recipe. I would definitely make it again, though I may use even more apples next time.

    TOTAL KEEPER!

    Melissa from chicago

    Brought this to a staff meeting this morning and it was gone almost immediately -- was asked by 4 people for the recipe. I used canned apple pie filling and the cake was superbly moist. I think I'm going to try to make more of the streusel topping next time: it was sort of goppy (still delicious though!)... it may go further with more oats.

  •  Star(s)

    Very Good!!

    Leslie Totten from Columbia, MO

    I made this last night & it was delicious! It was very easy to make. I couldn't find the frozen apples either, so I used canned. I also added a cream cheese icing which I really liked, but it tasted great without it too.

    Sherrie from Brazil,In

    I tried this cake and it was wonderful. Very moist. Very easy to make. It just did not last too long. Will make again very soon.

    Absolutely Wonderful

    Rochelle from Houston, Texas

    I was looking for a way to get my (5y/o) picky eater to eat something healthier than a pop tart or cereal for breakfast. So I tried this and not only does he LOVE it, so does his little (3y/o) sibling and my in-laws too. You cant beat that. Everyone in the house ate it up. I'll definitely be making this again very soon.

    YUM YUM

    Absolutely Delicious

    Judy from Bennettsville, SC

    The first time I made this cake it was a hit at work. I think I made one every other week for about 3 months. It is moist and has a wonderful flavor. It is better than any coffee cake I have ever tasted. It is so good you can't stop with one piece.

    Delicious

    lisa lanthorn from chula vista

    I made this for my family as a dessert and they went crazy for it. It was sssooo moist and the cinnamon in the cake mix gave it a coffee cake taste. Will make it again for company for breakfast next time!

    Faboulous last minute dessert

    Tess from New York City

    This recipe was so easy to follow and it only took 35 minutes to bake. My guests loved it as a dessert for brunch. Everyone wants the recipe!

    Delicious

    Patti from Dallas from

    Made the cake using Doris's suggestions for more spices. Everyone at work loved it. One suggestion to the creator of the recipe: Give an alternative recipe for the Stouffer apples. They could not be located at my stores in Dallas, so I had to improvise using apple pie filling and spices. Beginner cooks wouldn't know how to do this.

    Finaly something the kids will eat

    Mark A. Cowan from Jacksonville FL

    I have one son that will eat anything and one that won’t eat anything. He is underweight and I try to get him to eat all the time. Getting him to eat breakfast is almost impossible. This is one thing he loves. He will eat it anytime. It’s easy to fix also. If I can fix it anyone can.

    Doris from Kingwood

    DORIS SMITHSON-TEMPLE from Kingwood Texas

    I used spice cake mix instead and added extra cinnamon and freshly grated nutmeg--also added a second package of apples. Next time I will double or triple the strusel recipe as we could not taste or see the strusel with the proportions given.
