This is delicious! Light and yet moist. I subbed walnuts for the pecans but otherwise used ingredients exactly as written. I baked mine in a bundt pan and after it was cool, I dusted it with powdered sugar. I served it as a birthday cake last night for my husband's birthday and everyone really enjoyed it. Thanks!

Delicious! I halved the recipe, used a combo of applesauce and apple butter and left out the pecans, iced with a thin layer of butter cream icing. Thanks for sharing the keeper recipe.

Delicious. Moist. Holds very well and actually improves with age. I was in a hurry and went a little heavy on the spices, no harm done. Perfect fit for bunt style pan.
