      This is the best apple cake I have ever made. It's beautiful to see as well as to eat. I used 2 cups of flour instead of three. The batter would have been much too stiff with 3 cups of flour. Also, I also baked it for about 50 - 55 minutes instead of 80 - 90. I made it without the nuts but I'm sure it's great with the nuts too.
