This simple, foolproof cake is freely adapted from an old Farm Journal Cookbook. The original was developed by the wife of a New England apple grower and rated 5 stars. This version is quick, uses lots of unpeeled apples, and it stays fresh for days. As written, it works at 5000 ft.; use the amounts in parentheses for lower altitude. It’s really good with unsweetened cream and warm dulce de leche or cajeta.
