friend, Susan shared this Fresh Apple Cake recipe with me over 30 years ago after we bought
a bushel of apples on an impulse buy. We made many, many of these apple cakes from
the apples and froze them -- with plans to eat them all winter. Within days of
finishing the apple cakes my husband's employer transferred him overseas -- so all our
neighbors and friends got to eat these apple cakes instead of us! Whenever I
make this apple cake I think of that freezer full of fresh apple cakes.
