 Post subject: substitute 9 x 13 for bundt?
PostPosted: Thu Oct 07, 2004 4:58 pm 
I want to make the applespice cake for a group party for 72 people. For ease of those helpling can I have them make it in 9 x 13 pans instead of the bundt? Some people don't have good bundt pans.

Hi Janice - Do you have the Chocolate CMD book? Pages 6 & 7 give pan substitutions and advice. If your cake is heavy with sour cream, oil or chocolate chips, it can be tricky because the center tends to sink in a 9x13.

I only have the CMD book one. I just made this cake in a 9x 13 (tested on my family) and it seems a little crumbly. What can I add to make it less crumbly? I used Duncan Hines Moist spice cake. Use oil instead of butter? I want this to be easy to serve.

Personally I would use butter for the flavor, but oil should work as well. Also I would add a package of vanilla instant pudding mix or sour cream, just to provide extra moistness to avoid those crumblies. Even some extra chunks of apples would be nice. Good luck and let us know how they turn out.

Janice, are you talking about this Apple Spice Cake?
I'll agree with Marsha, and also,add another egg. There was a discussion about this cake awhile back and if you would like to read several posts on what was said about the cake just click on to Apple Spice Cake

Actually I baked the Applesauce spice cake on p 89 of CMD. Now I wonder if I should try the Apple Spice cake you described! I just want a nice apple cake, does not need ice cream, and will not crumble as we serve it, since we will put it out on the plates before dinner. ( and baked in 9 x 13)

Janice, did you read the reviews and the changes that Sadie made to the Apple Spice Cake? I have never made the cake, but Sadie bakes a lot and she didn't say anything about it crumbling. I believe, if it had crumbled she would have said something, because she gave a very thorough review, and I know that she pretty well judges everything with a careful eye, when she makes it. Maybe, she will come by and see this and have further comments to make. :D

I've only made this cake once but remember it as being very moist and delicious. Mary's right...if it had been crumbly I would have made a note of it.

Awhile ago Suanne posted a recipe for an applesauce cake that is also wonderful and very moist.
