Fresh Apple-Nut Cake


(4 votes) 4 4

This is a recipe passed down through my family, I remember my grandmother making it for us on Christmas, saying it needed to sit a day or two; it was so hard to smell it and not be able to eat it. The cake is so moist, but not so sickly sweet, it has a glaze and not a frosting. The cake can be served anytime, anyplace, for rich, and for those of us not so rich. It is always a big hit at church dinners, or any neighborhood potluck dinners. I hope you and your family enjoy it as much as all of my family always have.
