My family and I all love apple cake, right down to the furry members.  The apple cake  was one of my favorites at church pitch ins and was brought by one of the deacons wife on many occasions such as Sunday dinners on the ground and Wednesday night bible studies.  I was lucky enough to get the recipe from her and am happy to share it with you here.  It is very easy to make and is good for a dessert or I actually love it for breakfast with a latte!  My apple of choice is the Gala but you can substitute many different variaties.   Do you have a recipe that was one of your Sunday favorite – please share!

  1. […] Although my daughter stated last night that if I made one more apple dish she just didn’t think she could handle it I find myself needing to make our tried and true favorite apple cake as well as some good old-fashioned fried apples.  Our favorite apple cake recipe can also be found here on Best Foodies here: http://bestfoodies.com/blog/2011/04/23/apple-cake-memories/ […]
