This cake was easy and delicious. After reading all the reviews I was certainly torn; sweet apple vs tart apple, nuts vs no nuts, 2 cups sugar vs less sugar, frosting vs no frosting. What’s a girl to do? Well, this is so unlike me, but I followed the recipe exactly and it was just right.. A great tasting, moist cake and a great way to use up extra apples.
