Raw Apple Cake

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by carolinafan

A favorite at my house around the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays, but we enjoy it anytime. One reviewer suggested the title was misleading because the apples are actually baked in the cake. This is what my mother called the cake and what I have always called it so I will let the recipe title stand as it is.

I can't believe how many people are obsessed with a recipe name, Raw Apple cakes have been around a very LONG time, the name simply states that raw apples are put into the batter instead of cooked, get over it already. By the way not matter what you call it it is truly one of the best cakes ever, after all a rose by any other name ...
