*Reviewed for Read, Set Cook! #10 Contest* This was a wonderful gluten free cake- delicious taste and wonderfully moist. Very quick and easy to make. Straightforward instructions that were well written.Used 5 apples for this recipe. A great change from carrot cake. The pecans and spices were a great addition to this cake. Will definitely make again. Thanks for sharing a great recipe. It was great to see a gluten-free recipe submitted for the competition. Photo to be posted later.
