Apple Pudding Cake

If you like apples, raisins, walnuts and spices, you’ll love love love this cake! It smells heavenly while it’s baking and the yummy gooey pudding it makes is too die for…if you like this sort of thing!  Very easy to make!  The Amish and Mennonites didn’t have time to fuss around, they got right to the heart of making their food and desserts.  I think I just took a trip back in time!

Hope you enjoy as much as I did!

1 and 1/2 cups flour

1 cup sugar

    • Thanks Susie! I made this today and Neil liked it also. I was not sure if I’d like it or not, but I will definitely make this again. I liked the trees and lake also, it does look very serene. It’s one of WordPress themes. I know it does not go well with baking, but I still love it. WordPress needs to come out with some baking themes! lol
