Comment on French Apple Cake by Elizabeth.

Hi Jillian, I was just curious to what extent you changed this recipe from the one in Cook’s illustrated. They have a video of the recipe online, too, and your cake turned out thinner and with the apples visible on top, which is different from theirs. Perhaps a result of the leaking springform? I’m thinking of making this for kind of an important event soon, so I’m just looking to avoid any pitfalls. Any advice you have would be much appreciated! Thanks!
