Top Review by Kit Katchen

We really enjoyed this cake! I love that it uses whole wheat flour but that the taste from it doesn't overwhelm the cake. I ended up using closer to 2 cups of apples and unfortunately I had to omit the nuts but that would have made this even more delicious! I also used 1/2 cup of Splenda with 1/4 cup of sugar to help reduce the calories and sugars. I did dust the bottom of the pan with a tablespoon of sugar & cinnamon mix. By the way, with my brands and very slight alterations this comes to 2 WW points per piece. I should mention that the cake mix was VERY thick. I was a little bit concerned but it came out very nicely. It's moist, dense, and delicious! I think that next time I might mix in some oats to the topping mixture, which I had meant to do this time! Thanks for this wonderful recipe. It's definitely a keeper!
