Mom makes a great apple cake. The cake has a couple of layers of apple slices coated in cinnamon and sugar. Between the layers is a heavy and super moist cake that is, in my opinion, better than a pound cake. Perhaps it is the bit of orange juice in the batter that makes the difference. She bakes it in a tube pan and the cake goes without frosting or even a dusting of powdered sugar. It just doesn't need it.
She made one yesterday. She also made a mistake. She used a bundt pan instead of the tube pan and the cake won't come out cleanly. Fortunately, Lyn doesn't care and is perfectly content digging out a chunk of cake directly from the pan.
There's more than one way to get some cake and she's got it figured out.
