My favorite apple cake - packed with sentimentality! Granny used to make this when I was growing up - it was one of my favorite things! I have adapted it a little to make it healthier (I just have to do that with everything!) - the original recipe called for 1 1/2 cups of oil - and I use freshly ground wheat or oat flour in place of the all purpose. **PLEASE NOTE** If you substitute store-bought wheat flour for the all-purpose, you do not need to add the additional amount of flour - just use the same amount as all-purpose.
