Every time I make this super-moist yummy cake it disappears in record time! The phrase that I usually hear when someone tries some for the first time is, "Oh my goodness, what is this stuff?!!" they reach for another piece!

This is good, but very unsightful. Once you get past the appearance, then the taste is great. However, I would not serve at a party or such. However, this is great for close friends and family.

I made this with whole wheat pastry flour - 2 T less flour per cup flour called for in recipe. I used sucanat for the sugar. Very light texture, not too sweet. I think it would go well with a hot orange or lemon sauce. Wonderful food.

I just loved this concept of lots of apples held together by some cake! I didn't rate with stars, as I made significant "healthy" changes. My changes were to use all white whole wheat flour, sub the 1/2 cup oil with 1/2 cup of applesauce, and use only 1 1/2 cup sugar. I am sure the texture wasn't as light as the original, but no matter - still it was delicious, and everyone ate it up. I will make this cake again and again - and I might even try 7 cups of apples next time, maybe with a sprinkle of cinnamon-sugar on the top. I used empire apples, and did add the nuts, and that was a great combo. Thanks for this great recipe to inspire me!
