    This is dairy free.
    Thank you for posting this great recipe.
    It looks wonderful?

  7. Oh your cake looks delicious! I'll be trying the recipe for sure as I have an apple loving grandson coming for dinner tomorrow. I have a question about the apples though. In your photo, the apples look as though they've been chopped or diced, but your directions say to slice them. I wonder if you could clarify which it might be?
    Thanks so much!

  8. I agree with all the posts! I do have a question: is this baked in a large bundt pan? Kind of looks that way, but I wanted to be certain. I'm also thinking the pan probably should be greased and floured - yes?

    Many thanks to all the fabulous bakers/cooks at MGCC! Blessings for your day.

  9. Jay...I don't think it really matters which way you cut the apples. I sliced mine but it must be the way the cake is cut that it looks like the apples are diced.

    It is a greased bundt pan that the cake is baked in.
