When my sister Catherine made an apple cake for me, I asked her for the recipe. I made it a short time later and added some pears to the recipe, since we have pear trees on our acreage. The cake was very moist and tasted so good. Now every time I make it, people want my recipe. —Mary Ann Lees, Centreville, Alabama

This is great--very rich, but tasted delicious with all the wonderful fruits & nuts. A cake like this, I prefer just to dust the top with powdered sugar.
