Here is another family recipe. Of course I got it from my mom and she got it from my grandma. My mom made everything my grandma made and I make everything my mom made. It's so comforting eating something you have always enjoyed. Well tomorrow is the birthday of Johnny Appleseed, so I thought this was the perfect recipe to share. We all love this. When Ben turned 5 this was the kind of cake he chose for his birthday. For my kids teachers, I am going to copy this recipe down to give them tomorrow in honor of Johnny Appleseed.
