Cooking and Entertaining: Mom’s Apple Cake

Yummy-my mom's apple cake

When I was a child, my mom was a great cook and baker, and I have many fond memories, many of which involve (or really revolve around) food. One of my childhood (and remaining to this day) favorites is my mom’s apple cake.

Similar to a bread pudding (minus the custard), this cake is filled with tart apples, barely held together with moist cake. Topped with ice cream, it’s perfect for dessert and eaten solo, it’s perfect for breakfast or a snack.
