My grandmother made this as a breakfast cake when I was a child. It's similar to a typical "Ozark" apple cake, but uses butter, not oil. —JenniferF

I made this last night with gala apples and walnuts. I also made a vanilla glaze. My Mom said it is one of the best things I have ever made. Thank you for sharing your Grandmother's recipe.
