This cake was wonderful! I grated my apples with the peel on because I am lazy, I also subbed plain fat free yogurt for the apple butter because I had none. The grated apples sortof melted into the cake, making it super duper moist. This recipe filled my bundt pan completely plus a small foil loaf pan...enough to share!
