I just made my first apple cake for the season for our MSA Board meeting tomorrow. It is a great way for me to relax once I have all my materials ready for the Board members.
Our apple crop is not as big as usual but there are still plenty to enjoy. This recipe was given to me by Janet Hutchison the wife of our Board chair – Janet’s grandmother became a widow with seven children (all under the age of thirteen) when she was still in her thirties. She was still climbing her apple trees to prune and spray even in her seventies. Janet was fortunate enough to grow up living next door and enjoyed her fresh pies, cookies and this delicious apple cake. Enjoy!
