Recipe Tester Notes: The recipe does not say to peel the apples as this provides colour to the top of the cake but is not essential. We thought this worked well when topped with a few Sun Valley Sliced Almonds and lightly dusted with Icing sugar. It is a great, simple cake but we love the idea of spicing it up with a sprinkle of cinnamon or cardamom over the apples before spooning over the cake mix.
