To this recipe I added 1 cup sugar. Not in the ingredients just took a guess. I melted the 3 tablespoons butter put into the bundt pan rub into pan and left in there topped it with the following mixture. Then in the food processor I ground up 1/4 cup pecans with 1/4 brown sugar.I think the apple cut into chunks and folded into the batter would have been better. The sage could be hardly noticed.But a nice tasty cake.
At first the high altitude remark intimidated me, but I was desperate to use some sage honey (given to me as a gift). I DIDN'T use any sage, sugar, OR water, just 3/4 cup sage honey, 1/2 cup applesauce, 1/2 cup soften margarine and 3 eggs. Thanks to wonderful Rita L, (Her reviews are awesome!) I used nuts. Next time I will fold in the chopped apples(they weren't in the ingredient list either). Great cake for the diabetic.
