    Great moist cake! I also reduced sugars to 1 cup for the cake but not the topping. The sweet toasted pecans stood out in contrast with the more delicate apple and cinnamon flavors. Like other reviewers, I substituted butter for shortening and buttermilk for sour cream. My friends thought it was heaven served warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

    Delicious. Very cinnamon and I love that. I used more apples than listed because they needed to be used up. Also, I subbed butter for the shortening and plain yogurt for the sour cream but otherwise kept the amounts the same. I omitted the nuts, and was very happy to find the cinnamon sugar made a delicate sugary crust - the combo of brown and white sugar was really good. What can I say? YUMMY!
