Raw Apple Cake

This cake is a family Thanksgiving tradition dating back to my great grandmother who baked it over an open fire in an iron skillet. Well some things have changed, and some things have not. We no longer bake it over an open fire, but I still use my grandmother's iron skillet. It is mouth watering and the aroma as it bakes fills the whole house with anticipation.

How to Make Raw Apple Cake
