Fresh Apple Cake

Hi Ladies, Our church has a bake auction once a year and this cake I make always gets one of the highest bids...$85.00 to $100.00.....I have never had one apple loving person to not like this delicious mouth watering cake. It's moist with a creamy topping. I gave my friend this recipe and her family went crazy over she always makes a few extra in the fall and freezes them, that way they are already made for when company comes.....I hope you like it as much as we do....♥
