I received this recipe over 5 years and just never got around to it. Finally... I did, and now I remember why I asked for the recipe. It is a really nice snack cake....especially this time of year when all the apples are falling from the trees. This makes a nice high cake in the 9X9 inch pan and it is a little more dense .....like a snack cake. I was out of pecans at the time, which worked out well for my husband...who hates nuts in baking. They make a nice addition with the apples...so I would recommend having it with the pecans if you have no nut issues.
Below is the recipe as it was given to me. I think it may originally have come from a Company's Coming cookbook. If you are looking for a nice Apple Spice cake...I recommend this one highly. I used the Cardamom rather than the nutmeg.....because I love Cardamom.....but I am sure Nutmeg would also be good:)
