Author Notes: I grew up near a apple growing area famous for their Gravensteins which are wonderful in pies, cakes, cider, apple sauce and just juice. They have a very short season and don't travel well so unless you are lucky enough to live near a tree you will probably never taste one. But, you can buy applesauce and cider and juice made from this wonderful apple.My mother made this cake as long as I can remember. I think she found it in the Sebastopol newspaper and I make it exactly like she did...with Gravenstein apples. You have to believe me when I tell you how good it tastes. Because it is brown I just couldn't take a attractive picture of the cake. I just was too brown. I added a caramel glaze and that just made it shiny and brown. —dymnyno
