Spiced Apple Cake

I took a few notes and combined a few recipes to come up with this. This cake taste more "muffin like" than "cake like" as it is not overly sweet. I make it as a cake in a 9x13 pan, but you could also do it in muffin tins or in bread pans. Goes great with vanilla ice cream, coffee, and/or tea.
