    Hopeless rebel that I am I used light mayonnaise in this cake since that's all I had and I really had my heart set on making this. I'm so glad that I did because it is moist and delicious. The only change I made was to increase the apples to three as I felt there weren't enough.

    I have to say I'm very pleased to be the first one to give this review and rating.This was made on 4/3/08,and my first mistake was only making half.I've heard of adding mayonnaise to cake batter before,but never using it as part of a crumb topping.And since only half was made,the baking time was cut down to about a 1/2 hour.The smell as it was baking was just wonderful.And after it cooled down a bit, and ate a piece ( or two )the taste was just as wonderful.This will be made again.Thank you for posting,and "Keep Smiling :)"
