This cake is extremely delicious. I got this recipe from cooking class and this by far the best food we ever made in that class. Everyone loves it. I'm not a huge fan of apple cake but I really don't mind the apples in this recipe. I sometimes make this recipe without the apples and it tastes great. You have to try it, otherwise you are definitely missing out. *Helpful hints for making the cake* -Sweeter apples = sweeter cake -I usually use 3 apples because 4 is a lot for me -Applesauce is a substitute for oil. I use 1/2 cup oil and 1/2 cups applesauce. Depends how less fattening you want it to be. -I would core and peel apples after I am done the batter so they won't brown. Or you could put lemon juice on them. -Do not put cinnamon sugar mixture on top of your last batter when poured in pan. It will burn since it is on the top.
