"This is one of the best cakes I have ever tasted. I changed it just a little bit by adding 1/4 cup of olive oil (I don't use the extra virgin because the taste is a bit strong, but it also works). I..." See more also used half the cinnamon just because my husband is not crazy about it, but in the end I could still taste the cinnamon at just the right level. Instead of folding the walnuts in I sprinkled them over the top for presentation purposes only and it came out lovely. I shared the cake with relatives and then had to turn over this recipe shortly after. Thanks for sharing it with us!! "
"This cake is wonderful at breakfast or as a snack. I knew the apples I was using would stay firm and not give off a lot of moiture, so I added 1/2 cup of plain yogurt to the batter. It was moist but n..." See moreot soggy. The amount of sugar is perfect, and the same for the cinnamon. I didn't have the specified size pan, so I used a 10.5" cast iron pan without any problem. I love the glossy, deep golden color of this cake. It's old-fashioned in the best sense of the phrase. I wish I could tell you what it was like after being refrigerated, but it disappeared while it was still war,!"
