Absolutely wonderful. My boss wanted to know how I got the recipe for his grandmother's apple cake. I do have a suggestion. I read all the reviews bad and good. The only thing I did diffe...

I made this recipe and accidently used cake meal. It is delicious. Hubby did a taste test. Happy to find a good holiday recipe. (It's in the freezer waiting for Passover)

More like an apple cobbler, but HEAVY. Not eaten, in spite of lovely aroma and taste.

I made this cake three times during Passover and it was devoured every time. It's a great taste. So many apples! Don't overcook it or the apples will become too sweet. Thanks Shelley!

This is the best Passover dessert my family ever tasted! Took it to a Temple luncheon and everyone wants the recipe!
