Fresh Apple Cake

“A quick cake to make, and doesn’t need frosting. It’s good with whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream, but equally good on it’s own when you are craving something sweet in the evening.” – Calla Ferre

“I received this recipe from Evelyn Milo, a cousin on the Griswold side of the family.” – Jean Hansen
