Romanian Apple Cake

"This is a wonderfully simple, yet delicious cake! It is so moist and fresh, it will surely be a favorite with your family, just like it is with mine! The main length of the preparation time is cutting and peeling the apples. A mixture of apples works great, although I usually use Golden Delicious."

Excellent recipe...I did however make some modifications: Used pears not apples, 1 cup sugar not 1 and 1/2 cups, no baking soda used

This was a nice apple cake, made to the recipe. My apples carry a lot of moisture, so needs a little more flour for me, otherwise it's too moist. I would have liked to see some more cinnamon in ...
