Fresh Apple CAke

I love to bake and now that cooler weather is here, spent some time in the kitchen yesterday.  I have two cake recipes that I make every once in a while and this one is a favorite - fresh apple cake.  Somebody gave me the recipe almost 40 years ago.  It's easy to make even though I don't have a lot of patience when it comes to peeling the apples.

Fresh apple cake is full of freshly diced apples so I consider it a health food - he-he.  There must be as much, if not more, nutrition than found in the granola bars I eat regularly Monday through Friday at work.  While it's baking in the oven, the entire house fills with that yummy smell that just makes me feel good all over.

I couldn't even wait till it was cool before cutting a big slice to enjoy.

This is an old recipe and there is a note to mix with a wooden spoon.
