YUM, YUM, YUM! Pat, this made for a lovely breakkie this morning! The cake was moist on the inside with a gorgeous crunchy crust outside. The spices really came through and complemented the apple very well. The batter was a little bit dry, but I simply added some water to it until everything held together a wee bit more and it worked out like a charm. Due to allergy reasons I left out the pecans, but added some bran to the batter. Next time I might be using sunflower seeds (maybe even roasted ones). I was so happy with this healthy little cake and will surely make it often again (maybe using other fruits as well, like blueberries, cherries or peaches). THANKS SO MUCH for sharing this amazing recipe with us! Made and reviewed for Edn'8-Make My Recipe August 09.
