Grandma Alice's Fresh Apple Cake

Cindy Brown


Years ago when visiting my sister's in-laws, we often were treated to this wonderful Apple Cake as Grandma Alice had a small orchard in her yard. What a joy it was to savor the wonderful aroma of baking apples when we arrived .... the kids who were very young at the time enjoyed it just as much as we did!
I have cherished this recipe and make it often in the fall when the weather turns a bit cooler and a crispness is in the air! I usually make it in a glass pan but recently tried it in my DeMarle bakeware and it turned out great! Happy Baking!
