Melissa N Mike's notes for this recipe:
This is my grandmas fresh apple cake recipe. I have tweaked it but there is very little you can do to country baking perfection. I miss her dearly and this is my way of keeping her around.

I'm thinking of putting melted butter, brown sugar and chopped pecans in the bottom of the bundt pan then placing thin slices of apples on that. Then I'll put the cake batter in on a pineapple upside down cake. Wonder how that will work.....I'll let you know... ;)
