Nice and moist cake and so different with the nutmeg. I cut down the sugar. For me it was a little too buttery(the topping), but DDs loved it. There wasn't a lot of chewing involved for them. The topping was the most interesting part with the egg as a part of it. I just saw I was supposed to add some icing sugar.Oops. Thanks for sharing.
The best apple cake !!! I did reduce the sugar quantity . It is a keeper
