I took this to a potluck and everyone raved about it.

Very moist, tender, apple tasting cake. It's like apple pie in cake form, if that makes any sense. Next time I make it, I think I'll reduce the amount of sugar on the topping. It's a little sweeter than it needs to be and the sugar falls off easily, even though I slightly pressed it down on the dough before baking. Overall, very good. I think my girls will enjoy this in their lunch sack.
