    I recently made this after having a bag full of Mac's and looking for something different to make. The cake is on the lighter side, and the sweet crumble top is the perfect compliment. A++

    Apple-Scotch Snack Cake

    Phyllis Cole from PRAIRIE DU ROCHER, IL

    Baked this yesterday. My husband and granddaughter both enjoyed it. I didn't read the directions completely and mixed the 1 cup morsels into the batter. It worked fine and distributed the butterscotch flavor throughout the cake.

    Wonderful Fall Cake!

    Christine Christensen from Waterville, ME

    This cake was absolutely wonderful! My kids kept asking for more! I have made this twice. First time followed directions exactly. Second time, I mixed the topping stuff right into the cake. Made it a great cake to take in lunch boxes. Not messy! Thanks for sharing it!

    The Best ever Apple-Scotch Snake Cake

    ann brown from marble hill, MO

    My grandaughter Leah does not like Chocolate. (8 yrs old) I had to go to the Very Best Baking.com to find a recipe. I knew she loved butterscotch and apples so I went from there. This recipe came out and she liked everything that was in it. I waited for her arrival and she helped me (a tradition) but she could not hardly wait for the cake to be finish. She put the toping on it and then we ate her favorite meal. (homemade pizza) We finally got to eat LEAH'S cake. EVERYONE went for seconds and she was so proud of the cake. Leah said " Granny this will be my special birthday cake every year now." So as you see this is a wonderful cake for all ages. Grannie Annie

    NICE COMBO

    F J from

    MY BOSS AT WORK HAD TOLD ME THAT HE LOVED APPLE PIE. ONE DAY I BROUGHT IN A BUTTERSCOTCH CAKE, HE LOVED THAT TOO. SO WHEN HIS BIRTHDAY ARRIVED, I THOUGHT THIS WOULD BE THE PERFECT PRESENT FOR HIM. HE LOVED THE COMBINATION OF APPLES AND BUTTERSCOTCH TOGETHER.

    What a moist cake

    Jerry Rosen from SWAMPSCOTT, MA

    Because I like to use apples I changed this recipe and used two cups of diced apples. this proved to be an excellent idea as the cake had much more of an apple flavor than the first one I made.

    Not a Crumb Left

    Eileen Dunne from Edison, NJ

    We are currently in the process of renovating our bathrooms. Workers are in and out of the house 7 days a week. Being the perfect hostess, I always have a pot of coffee and "cake" for their morning break. One day I decided to try a coffee-cake. Went to your recipe research for apples and found the apple-scotch snack cake. Quick and easy to prepare, I had it cut and plated before I went to work. Later in the day, my husband called and told me that the cake went over so well with the working crew, Joe feared that they would slow their pace down-not a crumb was left on the plate. Lucky for my family--I had baked 2 batches and stored it away for our dinner. Thank you!!!

    apple scotch snack cake

    Shawn Allwein from Lebanon, PA

    I tried this recipe on Fathers Day and everybody enjoyed it. My mother in law thought it was excellent and kept some for herself. I thought I should have tasted more apple, but overall it was pretty good.

    Easy as Pie

    Alison Hau from Berkeley, CA

    Very easy to make and can be whipped up anytime as the ingredients are simple staples in the pantry! I halved the recipe and baked it in a 7 by 11 inch pan and baked it for 30 minutes and it came out just fine! Moist and cuts beautifully!

    Excellent!

    Jeri Haley from Tenino, WA

    This cake is easy to make and I used our famous 'WA' apples and the flavor and smell of them cooking in the cake was wonderful! AND when it was done, I had my husband and neighbor waiting for a piece before it cooled completely. They loved it just the way it was. Never made it to put ice cream on top, or freeze any, we ate it all! Very, very good, moist and tender, 'comfort food' and it is a definite addition to my 'collection' to my recipes. An A+++ recipe. Thank you for a wonderful cake!

    Apple-Scotch Snack Cake

    Andrea Howard from Greenville, SC

    I found this cake rather dry and tough. I may have over stirred, but I don't think so. The taste was very good, but the texture needs improvement.
