I have made this cake for years and we love it! My recipe had me add the cinnamon with the dry ingredients, and skip the extra sugar on the apples. I also sprinkle cinnamon sugar over the cake before baking (ca. 1/3 cup sugar with 1 tsp. cinnamon). It calls for a 13x9 pan, whichs bakes faster too. I just tried it last night using 3-4 cups UNpeeled zucchini that I chopped small in my salsa maker (manual food processor). It is absolutely delicious!!!!! You can't even tell that I used zucchinis!

Awesome!!! This has been such a hit at our house. I have made this several times now. We use cool whip instead of any frosting. The cake is very rich. Thanks for posting.
