Expert Tips

  • A brown sugar sauce ends up as the gooey top for this moist apple cake.
  • The cake needs to be turned out of the pan shortly after it's removed from the oven or the fruit will stick. Be armed with hot pads and a cake plate or a board.
  • Serve with sweetened whipped cream or an 8-oz container of frozen (thawed) whipped topping (3 cups) if desired. For 3 cups of sweetened whipped cream, in a chilled medium bowl, beat 1 1/2 cups whipping cream and two tablespoons granulated sugar with electric mixer on high speed until soft peaks form.
