This recipe was recently published in Kitchen Mailbox by Marge Biancke and I believe this is the Ann Arbor paper that comes out once a week or so recently."
Q. About a hundred years ago I had a recipe for an apple cake that Millie Schembechler used to make. Can you track down that recipe?"
ANSWER: "This wonderful recipe was featured in 'Simply Good Food" which was published in 1993. The original recipe uses 1 cup of cooking oil. I have since made it with 1 cup of applesauce instead of the oil. Either way, this is a nice cake for dessert or brunch.
