This cake brings back memories of my childhood. Often on the weekends we would travel from the farm up to Louisville to visit my grandparents. Grandma was a very good baker. We knew that a trip to grandma’s meant that there would be a nice pie or cake waiting for us. Grandma was known for here apple pie and apple dumplings. Both made from the Apples of the tree in here back yard. She was also quite fond of making this very simple yet delicious cake. There where many times that we would show up at her house to the smell of this beautiful, tall, golden, crusty, cake covered with nothing more then a ample dusting of powdered sugar. p.s. This cake is wicked good with fresh sweetened strawberries and a scoop of ice cream on top.
