Top Review by Chef Kate

I LOVE this cake! I followed some reviewer suggestions--added a chopped apple to the batter, doubled the vanilla. I also used four apples for the topping and used espresso powder instead of instant coffee. But I stuck to the butter/sugar amounts and the sweetness and butteriness was just right. It sliced beautifully -- I got12 nice sized pieces plus some "cook's treat" bits off the ends. I meant to take a picture but somehow it all just got sliced and taken away before I could...Thanks, Dreamer!
