Excellent moist cake. I would recommend baking it a little longer than recommended. As the other reviewer recommended, cut the spices down dramatically. The posted amounts just can't be correct. I used 2 teaspoons vanilla and 1 tablespoon cinnamon and it was perfect.
This is a simple, tender cake, but I think the flavors of cinnamon and vanilla dominate so much that you can't even taste the apples. I e-mailed the poster, who assures me these are the measurements he or she uses and enjoys, but I think I might prefer it with teaspoons rather than tablespoons of cinnamon and vanilla.
