The Best Apple Cake You'll Ever Taste

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 from. 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 for cooking and others for fresh eating. The best are those that are good for both.
