Joan’s Apple Cake

I am very happy to present January’s Food Blogger of the Month, Debbi Horseman Powers. Debbi may look familiar, she sent in the delicious Pumpkin Muffin recipe in November. This recipe is a vintage recipe, I love those. Joan’s Apple Cake is named after Debbi’s Mother’s friend, Joan Dobie. Supposedly this is a recipe from an old Kansas City restaurant, Stephenson’s Apple Orchard. This recipe has been prepared in Debbi’s family kitchen since 1968. You might notice that there is not any liquid in the recipe. That is not a mistake. I made this cake and it is fabulous. Thank you again Debbi for sharing this wonderful recipe with us.
