  • “Hubby and Daughter liked this so very much.Daughter took the recipe with her. Hubby still eating his. But why is it called One Bowl?”

  • “This turned out wonderful!My only critique was that there wasn’t enough apple for our tastes!My husband devoured three pieces when I got it frosted, and stood over the cake waiting until I started frosting it.The house smelled amazing while it was baking!Thanks for this winner!”

  • “Thank You for the wonderful recipe, my girls loved these!! So easy and the frosting is wonderful!!”

  • “Lovely cake, did raise up high too.I made a few minor alterations.I used 1 3/4 cups sugar instead and my oven is very accurate and this was done in 35 minutes. I used one tsp. of cinnamon and one of apple pie spice and I didn’t use frosting, I used a shaker mixed with powdered sugar and cinnamon and sprinkled over the top. I will make this again.Thank you!”
