Apple Dapple Cake

apple dapple cake
This is probably one of the best cakes I've ever eaten.  It's a simple cake recipe but what really makes it delicious is the glaze that is drizzled over the top.  My aunt gave me a huge pile of apples from her tree in Mt. View, California and with the apples she gave me this recipe.  I also used some of them for this "healthier" Fresh Apple Cake which we loved too.
