Recipe by Nikoma

Untried by me. Highly recommended by Dad. This was another of my Step Mother's recipes. Look forward to making it soon, seems like a very warm, homey Autumn dessert. If you get to it before me do let me know what you think!

I thought that 2 cups of sugar would be too much so I used only 1 cup. That way it's perfect. And it's still sweet. I used granny smith apples and gala apples. I wanted to add nuts but I forgot. Anyway I know my son prefer it without nuts and that way he can brings a piece of cake at school. This cake is delicious. I used 6 apples. When I added them to the dough, I thought it was too much but it was perfect. Thanks Nikoma :) Made for PAC Spring 2012
