Moist, tender and full of warm, fall spices, this Fresh Apple Cake is a delicious classic. To take it over the top, I smothered it with my all-time favorite cream cheese glaze.
Did you ever play that game with an apple when you were young where you would twist the apple stem each turn corresponded with a letter of the alphabet and whatever letter you landed one your boyfriend’s first name would start with that letter? So one turn equal A, two turns B and so on. So if you wanted your boyfriend to be Adam, that stem would never come out in one turn. Alternately, my stems never made it to ‘W’ either. So how is it I married a ‘Wesley’? So weird.
You know what’s funny, I can’t pick up an apple without twisting the stem and singing the ABC song.
Of course, when you go to peel the apples for this Fresh Apple Cake, it’s completely up to you if you want to participate in my little ritual. But, I highly recommend it. 🙂

This is a great recipe for someone like me who has a sack of apples from apple picking. Thanks for sharing it on foodie friday.
This cake is fantastic and has been for many years. I was given this recipe as a new bride (and I am not telling you how long ago that was) and it never fails. I like to use the big tube pan, too. It is sooooo fallish — great for TGV.
Mmmmm….sounds delicious! I would love to have you stop by 'Or so she says…' today and share some of your great ideas with my readers! The 'Your Great Idea' link party runs every Sat through Tuesday. Hope to see you there! http://www.oneshetwoshe.com
