Fresh Apple Cake

This Fresh Apple Cake has been "heathified" .  This simple cake uses less oil and sugar than traditional recipes.  Buttermilk reduces the fat and adds moisture and a rich flavor.  I had an abundance of apples donated to me by my aunt so I went searching for some good recipes.  This one was simple and a hit with the family.  I also tried her old recipe for Apple Dapple Cake (which is great too) This recipe is lower calorie than that one but still delicious.
