Fresh Apple Cake

READY IN: 2hrs
Recipe by BeachGirl

A fresh apple cake that bakes beautifully, smells wonderful and tastes sinfully delicious! The recipe was given to me by sister who got it from a friend. A great cake for bazaars, fund-raisers, potluck suppers, picnics, or a special family occasion. This freezes very well. NOTE: Gram/ounce measurements are from King Arthur Flour Cookbook

This is the best fresh apple cake I have ever made. I didn't have bourbon or rum so used whiskey to soak the raisins. I also used a tart green apple similar to granny smith. It was easy to make and was moist and delicious. Thanks for posting such a wonderful recipe. jeane
