Fresh Apple Cake

Ruby Henderson


I used to make this cake and send it to my son and his unit when he was in the military overseas. It keeps so well for shipping as a gift. And it didn't last long after it got there because it is so good. They were always asking for more. It is always one of the cakes I get requested to make during Christmas holidays. The house smells so wonderful when it is baking.
