What a lovely apple cake recipe! Its easy and quick to put together and the taste is fabulous! I would have never thought of putting vanilla and cinnamon together, but it really works and makes for a wonderful taste! I cut the recipe in half and had enough to make two small cakes (see pic). The apple-raisin filling is really yummy, but a little too much for the amount of batter. I had almost enough for another cake left after assembling the first ones. But I just baked that without any dough added and ate it plain. Mmmm! Due to personal preference I cut the sugar in half and it was still nice and sweet. Thanks so much for sharing this gem of a recipe with us, Chef! Made and reviewed for one of my babies during Fall PAC 09.

This is a wonderful recipe!! The second time I made it, I substituted dried cranberries for the raisins and the grated zest of a lemon in both the batter and when I tossed the applies. Absolutely out of this world!!
