WOW! Moist and Delish!!!

I've made this cake several times now and it is wonderful. I decided to followed the directions exactly and not change anything on the first try. It was very good, but we like spicy, so the second time I added a little less than 1 cup of raisins and upped the cinnamon to about 2 tsp, added about a tsp of cloves, it was delicious! I make a Pecan Praline Sauce and pour it over each piece while both are still's soooo yummie! or a simple sprinkling of powdered sugar. It's moist, delish and very easy to make. This cake can and will also stand alone, no problem!!!

Apple Cinnamon Pecan Cake

I made this for a church breakfast. I did not care for it. I think it maybe the nutmeg. It had a strange taste and the apples tasted like raisins. I did use splenda sugar blend. Maybe that's why it tasted strange. I want to try it again using sugar and eliminating the nutmeg
