Apple Cake

This is so easy (trust me, I’m not an experienced baker) and everyone at our Rosh Hashanah table wanted me to do it again. The cake itself tastes like challah (it is very eggy.)

Hat tip to Food 52. I revised their recipe by adding cinnamon. What do you think? Should an apple cake be made without cinnamon?
