Good flavor. The other reviewers are right about the batter being thick, like cookie batter (wait, should I try making cookies?). Also, I'd chunk the apples instead of slicing, or slice the slices in half cross-wise. I used my hands to mix the apples & walnuts into the dough/batter, it's far too thick for stirring. I'd also cut back on the cooking time, maybe mine was a little overdone because the pan was dark nonstick. Finally, the cake is very sweet, so I'd skip the frosting as it is absolutely NOT needed.
