      A nice moist apple cake, I used 1 cup sugar (half white,half brown) in the batter, also reduced the sugars in the topping! The finished cake was cinnamony!! is that a word? and delicious!!

      Delicious. Very cinnamon and I love that. I used more apples than listed because they needed to be used up. Also, I subbed butter for the shortening and plain yogurt for the sour cream but otherwise kept the amounts the same. I omitted the nuts, and was very happy to find the cinnamon sugar made a delicate sugary crust - the combo of brown and white sugar was really good. What can I say? YUMMY!

      I made this cake yesterday and everyone loved it. It is the best apple cake I have ever made, I have never managed to make a good one til now. I didn't have shortening and sour cream so used butter ( a touch over 4 oz's) and buttermilk. Although it is really lovely, flavorsome and moist as it is next time I will add a handful of raisins and walnuts in the mix and maybe a cup or two more of apple. Thanks very much for a lovely recipe!
