Knobby Apple Cake

Recipe by Marie

This is like an apple pie cake. When you bite into it, you definitely taste a lot of apple. It is fabulous and even better with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

The smell of this cake cooking is heavenly, so I wasn't surprised to taste that first delicious bite. The crunchy edges are the best part! I used pecans and a bit more cinnamon. And of course a scoop of vanilla ice cream. The apples need to be peeled and I recommend cutting them in 1/3" squares. I'd give this recipe 10 stars if I could. It's a keeper!
