Granny Smith Apple Cake

Slightly modified version of a recipe in Everyday Food magazine. This cake is SO good, especially while it's still warm (or reheated). Great for breakfast. Or topped with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.I choose Granny Smith apples for their tartness and because they hold their shape after baking. The apples come out completely soft after baking. I love the tartness of the apples mixed with the sweetness of the cake.Optional: Add 1/2 cup chopped walnuts if desired.Note: The original recipe called for 1/2c of butter, but I reduced that to 1/4 and added in 1/4 applesauce to lower the fat in the recipe. You won't even miss the extra butter at all.
