Apple Cake

As you know already, both my grandmothers passed the love for cooking to me, and started teaching me the ropes since I was a little girl. The first recipes that grandma Lucy taught me were her Magdalena and Borracho. When she said that we were making an Apple Cake, I was stunned. Usually she didn’t bake anything other than Borracho or Magdalena for our sunday family gatherings. I remember that she had someone coming over so she wanted to bake something different.

This is an amazingly easy cake to prepare- and you’ll be surprised of how fast you’ll prepare it. What takes most of the time, is peeling and dicing the apples. The batter doesn’t take much time to prepare.  I made this cake last Sunday, since my cousin and his family were coming over so I thought it would be a good dessert to have coffee with. It turned out to be a success, and when my dad wanted a piece of it… he just got crumbs! I baked a second cake on Thursday morning.   As of today (Friday) there’s only a third of the cake left! Got some good critiques from dad and my aunt saying that I made it just like Gradma Lucy! Couldn’t be happier! Hope you enjoy the recipe as much as I did.
