I had totally forgotten this recipe.
It is one of my all time favorites.
Every time Mother and Daddy came to visit,
I would have this apple cake warm from the oven
to serve them with a cup of coffee.

I got this recipe as part of our wedding gift
from Ms. Tommie Booth, our backyard neighbor
in Jackson. She was just precious....
Tommie would invite us over for her infamous
coconut cake, iced tea or this apple streusel cake
and we would sit at her kitchen table and talk for a few hours.
She also made the cutest little doll clothes.
She was an avid gardener too.
She and mother would be out tending to their rose bushes
and talk over the fence most everyday.
She gave me a lovely cookbook, kitchen utensils and some
of her best recipes when I married.
I will always remember her and love her!
