 Easy Apple Cake
Flavored with cinnamon and apples, Sherry Ashenfelter’s rich, old-fashioned apple cake is moist, dense and down-home delicious. Even better, it 's quick to fix and, served warm with whipped cream or a dollop of frozen custard, one of her Waterville, Ohio family’s very favorite recipes for decades.
