      OMG is this so, so yummy! BEST apple cake EVER! I found this orig inally in SL "Our Readers Top Rated recipes" Thank you for posting here for all to see. I sprinkled top with pecans and used pecans in place of walnuts in the cake itself (personal pref). The cream cheese topping is a must as well as the refridgeration. Very moist, much like a great carrot cake. I used gala apples and it worked out fine. A forever keeper for my fall sweets list.

      This recipe is great!! I have made this 4 times now. Tonight, I baked them in the large muffin pans. I baked at 350 for approx 30 minutes. It made a dozen of the large muffin size cakes. I omitted the pecans but used the yummy frosting. I will continue to use this recipe, thank you!

      I made this recipe for our National Night Out Celebration and it was a big hit! Everyone LOVED it!!!! I used a different recipe for the icing and did not put any nuts on top. I think I will make it again without the icing. It was soooo good! I have to print out extra copies of the recipe because everyone wants it!!!!
