Another apple recipe --my folks sent 4 HUGE boxes of apples down with some friends 3 weeks ago. I have been canning and dehydrating and pulling out all my apple recipes to make! This recipe comes from my newest Amish cookbook. I made this for our final Friday morning Bible study. We all liked it. It is a moist cake and doesn't need frosting(although a caramel drizzle would be nice, too)
