When it comes to baking with apples, my family has three go-to recipes that we love to make and are always a hit at family gatherings. I have already shared my Mom’s Special Apple Pie with you. I am about to share my Great Aunt Ruthie’s Fresh Apple Cake. And stay tuned because I will be sharing my Great Aunt Ina’s Apple Dumplings in the coming weeks. I honestly don’t know what I would do if all three were on the dessert table at once. Just kidding, I would without a doubt have a generous serving of all three!
I can’t remember a time when I showed up at my Great Aunt Ruthie’s house and there wasn’t a Fresh Apple Cake in the cake stand on the kitchen counter. It is like a decoration in her kitchen except for she probably has to bake one every other day given how fast we “kids” can devour it. This unbelievably moist cake is loaded with chunks of tart apples and crunchy pecans. Once you have your first slice you will be begging for seconds.
