Today I will give you a recipe. My friend Susie gave me one for German Apple Cake. I modified it by reducing the flour, sugar and oil, and adding oats for fiber. I also increased the nuts. The original recipe called for walnuts, but I only had 1/4 cup. And I eliminated the frosting, and will dust with confectioners' sugar instead. I also added the banana and raisins, because they were here. Please tell me if you like it. (We just ate some, and damn, I'm good.) There is only a hint of banana taste, it's mostly toasted pecans, apples and cinnamon flavors. My house smells like heaven.
