Fresh Apple Cake

Looking for a wonderful fall dessert?  There’s nothing better than fresh apple cake.  My mom gave me this recipe and I think it has been in her family for many, many years.  Everyone loves this cake and it is wonderful for the holidays.  This cake is full of apples and rich cinnamon flavor which all together creates a wonderfully moist cake.   You won’t be disappointed!  My mom says that this cake freezes well, but I have never made it to the freezer with one.  I hope you will try this it is a true heirloom recipe.  Do you have a favorite heirloom recipe?
