The girls and boys in my junior high home economics classes like this cake because it's not too sweet. I like it because it has high fiber and nutritional value—the apples are used unpeeled. Parents who have apple trees are always glad to donate the apples!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 9, 2010

I have been baking for 60 years and I am looking forward to baking this cake soon. I have a cake similar to this recipe, but a little different. I am always looking for recipes that are a little different than I have to try. Thank you for this recipe.
