Ddscrafts –Debbie Wilson mentioned this cake on Facebook yesterday. It sounded so good that I ran to the store and bought the apples to make it myself. It's a dense, moist cake and tastes better after it sits overnight.
As soon as it came out of the oven I tried a slice and it was really good. After sitting overnight, the flavors developed more from the cinnamon and the apples. Delicious with a cup of good coffee!
Since the recipe calls for so much sugar, I was afraid the cake would be too sweet but the tartness of the apples takes care of that.
