Apple Pie Cake

Think you’ve had the best cake in your life…wait until you try this recipe. Eat a slice at 8am and call it breakfast; eat it at 1pm and call it a midday snack; eat it after dinner with some ice cream and call it dessert.  Whatever you call it, you can always count on it to be deliciously satisfying.  This recipe was featured in a church booklet of apple recipes.  It came from my best friend’s late grandmother, Janet Whiteside.  She was one of the sweetest older women I have ever met.  I can always remember going to her house and playing with my friend and her brother and cousins.  It was usually in the summer after a long day at the beach.  Every time I eat a slice of this cake, it brings back wonderful memories.  Hopefully, you will be able to make your own memories too.
