This cake was delicious. Everyone who had a piece just loved it. We have 2 very small apple trees that have prodiced a bumper crop of apples this year. They will definitely help in making this cake again,

MY REVIEW

My whole family loved this cake... I used 1 cup of sugar instead of 3/4 c + 1/2 cup sugar blend and it was fine.. Left off the whip cream and had it for breakfast.
