Yes, very nice. I followed the suggestions of other reviewers and lowered the amount of sugar, used 3/4 cup. Furthermore I grated the apples. The cake was moist, tasty and easy to make. <br/>Thanks for posting.

This is delicious! I do agree with one reviewer and would lower the sugar amount however. I also think I would like to try some dried tart cherries in this as well as the cranberries. Mine took about 15 minutes longer to cook through than the stated time. I used a round 8 inch layer pan. After cooling a few minutes, I inverted the cake to a serving plate and dusted it lightly with some powdered sugar. My husband was in heaven while eating it.
