I have a question about the recipe "Louisa's Cake" from Jennifer Wagner. Do you squeeze out the apple? My shredded apples gave off a lot of juice, about 1/2c all told

Hi Windischgirl, the recipe doesn't call for squeezing the juice out of the shredded apples—though you're right, 1/2 C of juice from 1 C of apples does seem extra juicy!
I have made this cake a half dozen or more times. never squeezed out any juice. also ever made a lot of effort to be exact about the one cup of apple. it has been glorious every time.
