Funny story here...years ago I took this to a church gathering and a much older member came up to me and asked if I would give her the recipe for my apple cake. I couldn't help but laugh when I told her there were no apples in this cake but I would certainly make sure that she got the recipe. She looked at me with doubt in her eyes and I had to reassure her that it wasn't an apple cake. Two other ladies came up to me wanting the recipe as well and were also laughing and trying to tell Ms Naomi that it was not an apple cake.
