Recipe by LilPinkieJ

A family favorite from my Gamma Betty.

What a wonderfully spicy-sweet cake! It was moist and tender inside, with a bit of crunch on top. I used pecans because a) I'm from the South, and b) I was out of walnuts. :) I used 2 medium-large Braeburn apples which made just over 2 cups of chopped apple. This came together very quickly; we made it after dinner and got to enjoy it for dessert tonight. Thanks for sharing Gamma's recipe with us. Edited to say this stored well in the fridge for a couple of days - we warmed up individual pieces in the microwave when we wanted them. My hubby already wants me to make this again.
