REVIEW: 5 star recipe rating
This is a lovely moist cake with a fine crumb. The baking time in the recipe is just about right. Be careful not to over bake. (I used home-made apple butter.)

Loved this cake and I frosted it with apple butter, cream cheese, dash of lemon juice and confectioners sugar. I will check this site out again for more recipes
