5 stars from 1 rating of Apple Cake with Topping

This cake is just beyond description.It is so good. I brought it to a family dinner and I wanted to bring some home. They ate all of it, so no leftovers for me.

This apple cake recipe with topping is the perfect dessert to choose. It has its own topping, so you won't need frosting. The apple cake would make a perfect dessert with any meal.

Be sure to choose a good cooking apple. Some apples are better cooking and other for fresh eating. The best to choose are those that are good for both.

We have an organic apple tree in our yard that throws us off between 100 and 300 pounds of apples per year so I am always scouting out new recipes. Your cake recipe is very different from mine. I'm anxious to give it a try. Thank you.
