- Q: Can I use other fruits instead of apples?
- A: Yes, you can use pears, peaches, or any other fruit you like.
- Q: Can I replace the orange juice with lemon juice?
- A: Yes, you can replace it with lemon juice or any other citrus juice.
- Q: Can I use a different size of baking pan?
- A: Yes, you can use a different size of baking pan, but the baking time may vary.
If you want to make the cake even more flavorful, you can add some chopped nuts, such as pecans or walnuts, to the apple mixture before baking. You can also serve the cake with a dollop of whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
Another tip is to make sure that the apples are thinly sliced, so they cook evenly and don’t weigh down the cake. You can use a mandoline slicer or a sharp knife to slice the apples.
Lastly, make sure to let the cake cool for at least 10-15 minutes before serving. This will allow the flavors to meld together and the cake to set properly.
