Great Grandma's Apple Cake

This is a recipe my grandmother use to make every holiday and upon request. Miki first made it this year as I shared memories of her great grandmother.

When I first started to make it I would add cranberries and pears....very good.

It still gets made in my house each Christmas or Thanksgiving to remember my grandmother and to share it with my children.
