This is my grandma's fresh apple cake recipe. I have tweaked it but there is very little you can do to country baking perfection. I miss her dearly and this is my way of keeping her around.

Yum! Melissa's apple cake recipe has simple ingredients and doesn't require any fancy equipment. We love those types of old-fashioned recipes. This cake uses shredded apples that add a lot of moisture to the cake. Full of cinnamon flavor, it's dense and tender at the same time. Pecans add a nice crunch, but if you don't love nuts in your baked goods leave them out. This apple cake will be just as good. We opted to dust with a little powdered sugar and that added a pop of sweetness. A delicious fall recipe. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
