Thanks for the wonderful recipe. With fruit being so expensive these days, apples are still fair priced or it may be that I live in Washington state where they are plentiful. In anycase I buy a lot when my grandchildren come to visit. I guess mom buys a lot too, cause they said they were tired of apples. I told them that we'd have to find something to do with the apples, and we found your recipe. Now they want me to make this cake every time they come over instead of real apples. Thanks for sharing.
