Much better than good old momma's apple cake! This recipe happened when my cousin Jess happened to be sleeping over and we decided to make ourselves a tasty midnite snack. You "sweet tooth"s out there, be ready to get your tastebuds tickled!

@Zeph's - I don't think it was your fault. Mine did not rise, either. The flavor is pretty good and the density is not bothersome, but I'd like to try it again with some more leavening. I think it would be better if it had risen a little and were a bit lighter.
