Apple, Raisin, Walnut Cake

 Apple, Raisin, Walnut Cake
The girls and boys in my junior high home economics classes like this cake because it's not too sweet. I like it because it has high fiber and nutritional value—the apples are used unpeeled. Parents who have apple trees are always glad to donate the apples!
