Roman Apple Cake

I often take this to pot lucks and it is a family favorite. This is great as a coffee cake or a dessert. I like to use a tart apple for this cake (Granny Smith or Northern spy's are best). For a richer cake you can use butter instead of shortening. This cake freezes well and is even better after the flavors mingle. You can leave the nuts off, but we think it is best with them.
