This is posted as a request recipe and I have not cooked this, looking at it I would add some raisins. Maybe the apples could be sliced thinly instead of shredded.

- 1 teaspoon cinnamon

This is a nice and easy cake to make. The cake is moist and rich. The fruit filling tastes a little like an apple dumpling. I did use a little extra cinnamon. I was very impressed with the finished product. I served it with a little vanilla ice cream. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe. Definately a keeper.
Found this very easy to make & I wouldn't change anything on it!! It was moist and had great flavor! I am not much of a dessert person But this one will be in my book !!
I quartered this recipe so I won't give it stars because it could be related to trying to make a small amount. I did it in a loaf pan and found there wasn't enough of the dough stuff but there was a good amount of apple, using two apples. Suprisingly to me, it was very easy to shred the apples with a regular grater. I used whole wheat flour, and replaces the white sugar with brown sugar in the apple mixture. For me, the bottom wasn't cakey at all, it was like a tart bottom, and the top was crumbly, although I felt it needed a little more flavor in the top half of the crumbly dough. The filling mixture was perfect, though. I would give it 3 stars.
