I had been eyeing this recipe for sometime. I decided to go for it. Using six apples, seemed like too many, so I cut down to four. I also cut the sugar down a 1/2 c. and excluded the nuts. After baking, I realized I could of added six apples, but it still had a nice flavor. I gave to my husband to take to work and he said it was a hit. The carmel drizzle frosting is very good. I will make again, following the recipe exactly.
