Thirty-three years ago I met Elaine Nelson. Her Mother, Mrs. Evans, would make this cake for her. She would always share with me. I make it to share with everyone too. It is a gift of love, as is Elaine and her dear Mother, Virginia.

This is really tasty, I've had this printed off for awhile and since I bought a BIG bag of apples on sale a few days ago, I thought it a perfect recipe to make. Apples I used were Braeburn. Thanks for posting. =)
