Many years ago, my mother-in-law shared this recipe with me. She was a wonderful Italian lady who could cook circles around anyone. Although this is not an Italian recipe, it is so easy to make and so, so good. The cake batter is very thick and the apples just seem to melt into the other ingredients as it cooks. After a big meal, this is the perfect dessert with a cup of coffee. I have even been know to nibble on it for breakfast. I hope you all enjoy it as much as I do. This can be served warm or at room temp.
