My neighbor, Cindy, would make this cake every year for my husband. He LOVED this cake. She told me if I could guess the main ingredients that she would give me the recipe. She would put black walnuts in the cake, so it would be hard for me to enjoy it, since i do not like black walnuts. One month, when I was in Shreveport Louisiana working, I called her and PLEADED for the recipe to make it for my co-workers. With the substitution of English Walnuts, I loved the cake. Now my husband gets this cake with English Walnuts and he likes it just as well. I think He and Cindy were just trying to keep me out of the cake!!!! Hence the name of Cindy's Secret Apple Cake.
