You can also bake this cake in an 11 x 7-inch or a 9-inch square baking dish in place of a springform pan, this cake is *so* good! :)

Yum yum! We loved this Kitten! I added nuts in with the apples. This brings breakfast at our house to a whole new level :)

I started eating my first piece and knew I wasn't going to stop at one! The whole family loved this and asked me to put the recipe in a special place, so I guess you know it went over big time with all of us! I added nuts too and they really made it extra special!

This was very easy to make. It was a hit when I brought it for a dinner party. Lots of cinnamon flavor. Perfect for fall
