This is a favorite of my late grandma's recipes. She passed away a year ago October 27 and I am just now able to look at her cookbooks and make what I call my memory food. This is a very simple cake and is delicious iced or not. Enjoy!

YUM! Sometimes the old recipes are the best ones! I had some apples that I wanted to use up, so I used quite a bit more than 2 cups, we like lots of apple so it worked out really well. At first I thought the dough was too stiff, but once the apple was mixed in it was fine. I sprinkled the entire top with cinnamon sugar before baking, and we didn't think it required an icing. Delicious. Your grandma's recipe is a perfect treat, great tasting and not too heavy. Thanks for posting, made for PAC Spring 2010.

This was so good and just the right size for my family to have as a snack. Of course, they ate the whole pan in one sitting. I agree with Grandpa Harry....the smell alone was worth the effort. THANKS FOR SHARING...I LOVE GRANDMA RECIPES!!!
