This cake makes a tasty dessert either by itself or served with a little creme anglaise on the side. The leftover cake (if there is any!) makes a great breakfast with a nice cup of hot tea. I used chopped pecans instead of walnuts simply because that's what I had on hand.
This is EXCELLENT! Not only is it on the less sweet side, it also smells wonderful once baked and out of the pan and draws people to the table like bees to a flower:) I substituted the butter with margarine. Also, as I did not have buttermilk on hand, I used 1 tbsp. milk and to that I added a tbsp. of lemon juice, then allowed it to sit for 10 minutes before adding it into the cake batter. Thanks for posting! It's a keeper and now off I go to put it into my manual cookbook:)
Easy to make with on hand ingredients. Nice and tasty combination of apples and walnuts. Feel good cake.
