This recipe was delicious! The cake is moist, and the apple/spice/apricot topping was perfect! I will definitely serve this again with a small change to the cake batter. The cake layer was a little bland, so next time, I will add a few dashes of vanilla and possibly a little extra cinnamon to the batter. - 15 May 2013
