This recipe was passed on to me by a dear neighbor who was a Nanny in Austria for many years. She was 84 when she passed away, but her Mom made this for her and her brother when she was a little girl. It is a moist, heavy cake. I find that Cortland apples taste best in this recipe. If you do not have access to Cortland apples, Granny Smith's add a nice flavor as well.
