Apple Cake Recipe from Julie Paschkis

In Apple cake: a recipe for love by our visiting author/illustrator,Julie Paschkis, this recipe for apple cake that has been handed down in Julie Paschkis's family is part of the text.  Many students expressed interest in tasting the cake, so I asked for permission to reproduce the apple cake recipe on our school website.

Happy baking!
