This is an old apple cake recipe. Not a cake made from old apples, but a recipe that I have had for a very long time. Not really sure where I got it. I think it was some time around the time that I was a member of the West Chicago Mothers’ Club. I usually make it about once a year. It is not exactly a quick recipe but is so worth the time. It doesn’t take forever, it’s just that I am not a fan of peeling and chopping apples. But it is the thought of the results that make it worthwhile.
1C chopped walnuts/optional
(Want a little decadence? Have a scoop of vanilla ice cream next to a warm slice of cake. Yum!)
As far as the apples go I usually buy whatever tart ones that happen to be on sale. How many make up 5cups? It varies depending on the size of the apples of course. I tend to buy a bag of them.
Sound easy enough? It really is. Just a little time consuming, chopping apples and all.
Every year at this time I get the urge to make Apple Cake.
It’s Fall again! Time for beautiful colors, cool mornings, and crisp apples.
Oh, yes, and a bit of news! My application to take part in the Morris Three French Hens Market on October 11th has been approved. Another great market to get ready for!
Have a great day everyone!
