Apple Dapple Cake

This recipe comes from Grandma’s recipe box. There were more recipes in the “cakes and cookies” category than all the other categories of food put together! Grandma’s dessert prowess was legendary and a lot of people ate delicious treats in her living room. She had an incredible gift for hospitality. Grandma and Grandpa lived their entire married lives just a few miles from a now-decommissioned naval air station. Every Sunday they invited servicemen home from church with them and fed them vast quantities of home-cooked food. Many of those young men (and later young women) kept in touch with Grandma and Grandpa for years. Personally, I suspect that it was the desserts that won their undying loyalty!
