Fall Is Coming – Apple Cake

Last week, I was in my backyard and I felt a rush of fresh air.  It was different from the heavy humid air we have been experiencing for the last few months.  The first thought that came to mind was, “Fall is Coming.

Fall means so many exciting things in the South.  Pumpkins, football games, apples, multi-colored leaves and beautiful clear comfortable days and crisp cool nights.  My first thought of Fall is Apples and that is my main focus in September.  Last Saturday at the Farmer’s Market I purchased my first apples of the season.  I started thinking about my favorite Apple Cake recipe. Someone baked this for me years ago for my birthday.  Oh did I mention that I was born in the fall so that just makes this time of the year even more special to me.

Here is this favorite Apple Cake Recipe and I hope you enjoy it and the upcoming season of so many wonderful sights and sounds.

1 and 1/2 cups of oil
