Mrs. Mortensens' Fresh Apple Spice Cake

When I was fresh out of High School I worked for Mortensen's Greenhouse in Ohio and the owners elderly mother would bring this and other treats down to us to feast on. As far as I can tell this is the recipe or as close as I could get. The copy she gave me all those years ago is buried in a box in my pantry. When I get to it I'll edit the recipe if necessary. I insist you try this one! Be careful not to overbake so it will be nice and moist.
