Kentucky Apple Cake
By Lisa Glass Sqrlmama
When my mother passed away, a close family friend made us two fantastic cakes. This apple cake is one of them! Both my father and my boyfriend couldn't stop raving about this one and said they could eat this cake all day, every day. When I took this cake to work for a carry-in, a coworker said it was the best thing she's ever had in her mouth. I told her she's a newlywed, so she better be careful what she says ;)
I wish we could keep one of these in the oven at all times... it smells a-maz-ing! (Super tasty and moist, too.)

Can I use butter, I never use margerine, too much fat in it? Thank you.

Rose, I always use real butter even if the recipe says margarine. If the recipe specifically says margarine only, then I follow those instructions the first time I make the recipe. Hope that helped! :)

Has anyone tried using buttermilk in the cake too instead of regular milk? Since there is buttermilk in the glaze I was thinking of trying it in the cake too. Or is it too thick for that? This cake sounds so delicious! Thanks for the recipe.

Nancy I make the very similar KY BUTTER CAKE with buttermilk and I make another similar apple cake that calls for buttermilk....so I am betting buttermilk in this would be delicious! I use buttermilk every chance I can! =)
