I came across this cake on Taste Of Home, and since I love all things apple and cinnamon it was bookmarked right away. I made it as a dessert for a very simple dinner of homemade vegetable soup and rolls.. I had the pleasure of having a piece of this for breakfast. I loved it! Comfort food at it's best.
