Recipe by Virginia

Wonderful moist cake, made with apples straight from the orchard. I usually use Jonathan's or Grimes Golden, but these are hard to find.

This cake is wonderful! I made it to take to a get together with my family and ended up leaving the little bit that was left over for my dad who is a real apple connoisseur. Ended up going home and making a second one that same day. Still after a week, it's all I can think about and can't wait to have time to make another. P.S. I did make one change. I added 1 tablespoon of flour to the sugar and water before bringing them to a boil.
