MOTHER'S FRESH APPLE NUT CAKE
Every October, I bake Mother's infamous
Apple Nut Cake!
She was voted "Cook of the Month"
in Jackson and this was one of her prize- winning recipes!
I fondly remember coming home from school
and smelling this freshly baked apple cake
during the fall months....especially October!
I have baked this cake ever since I was married
each and every fall....without fail.
In fact...just as the Divine Miss M
and I were talking yesterday morning,
I mentioned I was just putting Mother's cake in the oven
she replied...."Oh, I LOVE that cake!"
