The Apple Lady's Apple Cake is THE BEST! I make it annually when the new apple crop is abundant. Similarly, Patricia Wells' Winemakers' Grape Cake is terrific, too.

It may seem a little boring but homemade applesauce is probably the most important apple dish I prepare. I do cakes, pies and apple butter but the smell of fresh sauce cooking puts me back to childhood. I really enjoy sharing the tradition with my kids, and it is better than anything on a store shelf by far!

Our go-to apple recipe is from Patricia Wells' Paris Cookbook: The Apple Lady's Apple Cake. We make it gluten-free and it is divine.
