We enjoy this cake as a snack, packed in lunches or as a scrumptious dessert when warmed and topped with a scoop of low-fat ice cream. If the batter seems really thick, don't worry: Once you stir in the apples it loosens up. —Cindy Beberman, Orland Park, Illinois

"easy to make and very good! Not overly sweet. Great way to use up some apples. If you like cinnamon, double the amount. This makes an excellant quick breakfast, with a little bit of butter on top. Also, can be dressed up a little with sprinkling of powder sugar on top. As a volunteer Field editor for taste of home magazine, I enjoy recipes that use classic ingredients."

"These were terrific for the kids and husband to take in their lunches and grab as a quick breakfast. I added a pinch of nutmeg, and left out the nuts."
