Enjoy this cake quickly...once everyone tries it, it will disappear fast! No matter where my brother was stationed in the Navy, this cake was always at the top of his care package request list.

This cake is a must-have for any gathering, but most certainly in the fall. The aroma of this cake made the Test Kitchen smell like it was time for Halloween and to go bobbing for apples. This cake is really moist and the addition of orange juice really gave it an extra layer of flavor. I also loved the fresh apples. It's a really nice surprise when you get one in a bite.
