Here's my mini-version of this recipe:

full recipe but less than 3/4 cups of sugar and

I used half castor sugar and half brown sugar

two varieties of apples

**note to self: 3 mini round pans would have been better**
baking time 35mins
sweetness just nice
still warm from the oven!

Hi Emily, This cake is absolutely one of my all time favorites! Great job!

Emily said...

Thank you Diane! I do think sugars can be reduced further..

Kathy, It was on my mind (while enjoying a slice of this) that 'hey, this is pretty good!' ;)

What a great idea to make the smaller cakes! I wish I had space to store more baking gear.

Hi Emily,
I have made this cake too, together with my sis, ages ago, but did not post it! Busy eating, did not take any photo! It was good!
Have fun catching up! :)
