The lady knew what she was doing. Super-moist, super rich and dense. Even better the next day. Don't skip the glaze - it's awesome!

This one I am going to make alot. Perfect way to use up those apples that never get eaten. I LOVED it! Defiantly a new family recipe for my house!
This was pretty popular in my house, especially with the guys! I didn't have any pecans in the house, so I just added extra apples to make up for the volume of the missing nuts. In my usual recipe-fiddling manner, I also added a bit of cinnamon to the dry mixture, and a teaspoon of vanilla to the glaze. Definitely a calorie-bomb, so make sure you have lots of people to share with, but really worth it if you like dense moist fruit-based cakes. My BIL said that it reminded him of capirotada, a Mexican type of bread pudding (maybe it was the vague raisin-like taste that the cake had once it sat overnight?). At any rate, this was very well-received by all my eaters, thanks for posting! Made for PAC Spring 2008
