Most popular  german apple cake taste delicious with tea.  Perfect for kids & healthy too.  Instead of apple even plums, apricot, cherries can be used.  Cake looks shiny & fluffy once baked.  By spreading apricot glaze adds more flavour to the cake.  Last week I was invited to my friends house for lunch & I baked this cake just for them.  It was delicious :)
