    Chef Kate's Note:

    My friend Robin's Aunt Mary, both of whose parents were born in Hungary, was a legendary cook. This is one of her cakes--a very moist and delightful cake.

      Yes! Kate this sure is a very moist and delightful tasty cake. I did top it with a streusel topping which gave this moist cake a nice crunch. I did use walnuts in the cake and added cardamom. Yum! Thanks!

      A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. truly THE best apple cake ever and so easy. I am not a fan of raisins so I soaked some cranberries in bourbon instead, but other than that followed this recipe to a T and it was superb. Will most definitely make again.

      I needed a recipe to use up some apples a neighbor had given me, and this looked easy. It *was* easy, and delicious!! I made it with only a very light sprinkle of cinnamon (hubby doesn't like it much) and added some freshly grated nutmeg. I also topped it with streusel, which put it over the top. The true test, though, was that hubby loved it too... thanks for the yummy, EASY recipe!
