Reviews for Apple Harvest Cake
"I've been making this cake for 3 years now and it has become a family favorite. I do find splitting the batter in half a challenge, but the cinnamon in the middle is totally worth it."
"My family and I loved this cake!"
"Easy to make and uses ingredients that I'm likely to have on hand. Delicious served warm with ice cream or left-overs can be used for breakfast or lunch."
