Made with mid-season apples, this moist cake is easy to whip up for any occasion. I have just taken mine out of the oven and it is delicious! From Good Taste magazine, Australia.

Sensational recipe. I sprinkled cinnamon on the apples (just because) but otherwise followed recipe exactly. A keeper. Jane
