This was a drop-dead-easy recipe to follow for a knock-your-socks-off tasty cake. Since our apples had been in a vegetable drawer in the fridge for three months and the raisins were a bit dry, I added about 1/3 cup water to the batter to help hydrate the fruit. And I may have used an extra 2/3 cup of apple slices. Can't help adding extra fruit. All who ate the cake with a dollop of whipped topping loved it.
