Grandma’s Apple Cake

how to make apple cake

This apple cake recipe is the BEST one I have made!  A good friend of mine passed it on a while back.  I wish I would have baked it sooner.  My goodness!!!! I am doubling up the ingredients next time :)


This is what the cake will look like when you take it out of the oven.  Not pretty looking, but tastes amazing!
