Every Thanksgiving when I was growing up, Mama would make a “Fresh Apple Cake”.  Labor intensive, the three-layer cake included spices, freshly cracked pecans, raisins and a lot of fresh apples.  Although it would have been delicious without any icing, as I recall she made a rich caramel frosting for it.  Needless to say, it was superb and didn’t last long!

A couple of Christmases ago, I discovered this easy, scrumptious apple-raisin cake.  This was our dessert for tonight, cooked in a large cast iron skillet with no icing.   It is so good and brings back apple cake memories of long ago…

My Southern Heart...the Stories blog is about my life growing up in the South in the fifties and sixties. It was an amazing time...a time of falling in love, getting married, having a family. A time of history in the making, political unrest, rock and roll. Come along on my life's journey. It's a chronological story, so be sure to start at the beginning. It will make a whole lot more sense that way. Check out: My Southern Heart...the Stories
