Passover Apple Cake

Anita Hoffman


This moist and delicious Passover cake improves with age. Keep the cake in its dish, covered with plastic, and the next day you will have a candy-like coating on the top of the cake.

    Put the remaining apples on top of the batter.
    Sprinkle evenly with the remaining topping mixture.
