Fresh Harvest Apple Cake

I have been planning to make this cake ever since the weather turned cooler.
Then one of my baking buddies mentioned she was looking for an apple cake recipe today and that prompted me to dig this one out.
This is my ALL TIME FAVORITE apple cake recipe and I'd like to share it with you.
