Lucia Johnson of Massena, New York bakes this nutty apple cake that's pleasantly topped with a simple cinnamon-sugar mixture. It's sweetly priced at just 19¢ a slice. "Serve it with a dollop of whipped topping," she suggests.

"I loved this Apple cake! I had all the ingredients on hand, simple to make and we loved the cinnamon sugar on top it formed almost a sweet crust on top. This is not overly sweet and would be great in the morning with a cup of coffee or served warm for dessert with some I vanilla ice cream. I will be making this again for sure!! Excellent!!"

"Great cake! Very moiste. Perfect alone or topped with ice cream. Followed directions exactly, I did chop the apple very finely. The cinnamon-sugar gives the top a nice little crunch. As a volunteer food editor for Taste of Home magazine I love recipes that use fresh ingredients and can be assembled quickly!"

"This is a favorite & easy recipe that I make often. I am always asked for the recipe whenever I take it someplace. I put it in a 8 x 8 pan or double the recipe & put it into a 9 x 13. One big change is that I GREASE the pan. Sure makes getting out of the pan much easier."
