Best Moist Apple Cake

Best apple cake we’ve ever eaten. I’ve taken three recipes and combined them to create what my family now requests for birthdays!

We think the cake is better once it sits for awhile. Even refrigerated and then heated back up, the flavors seem to really stand out. You can substitute pecans for the walnuts.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
