Aunt Janes Apple Cake

"Growing up, apple cake was a special treat to be enjoyed each September in honor of the Jewish New Year. Each year, regardless of who was hosting our Rosh Hashanah dinner, my Aunt Jane would make a version of this cake that was absolutely to die for. As an adult, many years later, out of the blue, I visited Aunt Jane to learn how to make this cake. The catch? It turned out that she measured everything with her hands! What I am sharing here is my best guess at Aunt Jane’s Apple Cake using our Eastern Shore Honey."
