I love cooking seasonally, and when October rolls around I find myself wanting to bake this recipe. It is TRULY foolproof! I recently decided to try another "apple cake" recipe and was very disappointed - there weren't enough apples - the cake was dry and bland. But this one never fails and I want to share it with you - I hope you decide to try it.
