sticking an uncooked spaghetti noodle in the cake;
if it comes out clean, the cake is done. If not, bake another
10 minutes and test again.
2. What is it about this recipe that you love?
This is my grandmother’s recipe. I remember making it with my
mother as a child. I would get to chop the apples. I still have
the original chopper in my kitchen today.
3. How did you learn to make this recipe?
In my mother’s kitchen, we would measure the ingredients and chop and cream these ingredients together to make a warm cake in winter.
4. Please share a story or memory to go along with the recipe.
This cake is rich and moist, and in my memory it gets better the longer it sits after you bake it – two weeks later, this cake is still good, if there is any at all left!
