This is like a cake and apple crisp together, serve warm or room temperature with ice cream or caramel sauce. You can add in raisins to the pumpkin cake batter. This cake is wonderful!

I think this is best when warm. When it cools, the apples make it soggy.

What a lovely taste of the holidays! I used Splenda, light sour cream, some wholewheat flour, eggbeaters and the Soft Baking Butter that is half canola oil. This is so-o-o good. I topped it with CoolWhip Free. Thanks, Carole in Orlando
