Another great recipe given to me by a friend. Make sure the apples don't touch the sides of the bundt pan....this will prevent the cake sticking to the pan.

Excellent moist cake. Used Gala apples and doubled the amount. Doubled the topping as others mentioned, but I read wrong and used 2 tablespoons butter in stead of 2 teaspoons, so I added a couple tablespoons each of rolled oats and flour. It was wonderful.

Hi Zurie,
The cake was wonderful, soft inside and crunchy outside (nuts!).
I've used our apples and nuts from the garden and yogurt instead of sour cream. This worked very well.
As I have sooooo many apples, I used about 700 g (peeled and sliced). Mmmhh... i will keep this recipe in my favorites!
Thanks a lot
