Barbara enjoys writing about the things I love. Her hobbies include gardening, crochet, reading the Bible, cooking, and home remedies.

Apple Cake - This is a wonderful crunchy cake. You've got to try it.

Apple Cake - This is a wonderful crunchy cake. You've got to try it.

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 to choose are those that are good for both.

Lady Lorelei, Thanks for looking at the recipe. I really enjoy this one. You are lucky to get so many apples.

Lorelei Cohen from Canada on June 08, 2015:

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.
