German Apple Cake

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by Whisper

This is a moist and delicious cake, and very easy to make. Our church used to have an international dinner every January, and I took this one year. It was a big hit! I've made it several times since. Recipe is from The Best of Mennonite Fellowship Meals.

This was very moist and delicious. I used 2 granny smith's apples. It was about a little more than 2 cups. I also used light brown sugar. A very tasty recipe. Thank you for sharing. I made this for the Cake-a-Thon in memory of Chef-I-Am.
