You may have noticed that I have not been posting for awhile. It's been apple time at my house. We don't always have a crop but when we do I try to freeze bags of them to make apple pies and cakes during the winter. I peel, slice and bag them in the right amounts. I also make applesauce to freeze.
Many years ago my mother gave me a recipe for apple cake that I still use today. She didn't cook much so a passed on recipe was a rare bird. I do remember one time when we didn't have a lot of money she cooked up a pot of soup, using corn and onion. She called it "cornion" and it was surprisingly good.
Here is my mom's apple cake recipe and a photo of the one I just baked.
