Romanian apple cake

    1 hour 15 min

    This is a wonderfully simple, yet delicious cake! It is so moist and fresh, it will surely be a favourite with your family, just like it is with mine! The main length of the preparation time is cutting and peeling the apples. A mixture of apples works great, although I usually use Golden Delicious.

    Altered ingredient amounts. Would add a little less sugar in next time. Although I got away with it as I used super tart Cox apples. May try light brown sugar too.  -  07 Oct 2010
