This cake is simple to make; the most time consuming thing is to chop the apples and pecans. Three small apples gave me the 1.5 cups of chopped apple. The flavor seems to come from all the sugar. Next time I make it, I will reduce the sugar by half, and add some spices such as cinnamon, cloves, allspice and nutmeg. Also, I won't chop the apples so finely and may try Granny Smith or another tart apple to contrast the sweetness. I did use 1.5 cups all purpose flour and 1 c. whole wheat flour to improve a little on the healthfulness, and it rose nicely while baking.
