I made this last night and it was a big hit! I used a whole teaspoon of cinnamon and 3 granny smith apples peeled. I chopped them in large pieces. I didn't use the nuts but added about 1/3 cup of raisins. I served it warm with vanilla ice cream.
I had cooked some apples in a sugar/water syrup and didn'tknow waht to do with it so I made this cake. Yum! I took it to a church potluck and it was much enjoyed. Thanks!
