An apple lover's cake for sure!! Very moist with a carmel-like frosting. Great for serving guests and for family celebrations. This recipe has been used frequently by my relatives.

We loved this cake. It was so easy and looked so delectable. I think it would be good even without the frosting, but it's so yummy and just puts that finishing touch on the cake. I made exactly as written and I think I'll keep it that way.

I added finely chopped nuts to the frosting for added delight! Everyone loved this cake and my DD requested that I make it for her birthday coming up in October. We can't wait to have it again! Thank you for sharing!
