Absolutely delicious. Chunks of fresh apples and pieces of walnuts made the cake super moist and tasty. It was so easy to make, I also added 1/2 cup chocolate chips and reduced the sugar to 1/2 cup. The cake itself was delicious enough. I cut down the amount of icing, only used 1/2, and added some cocoa powder to make a chocolate icing (Chocolate is something that I want to put into any dessert). Overall a definite 5-star cake no doubt.
