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.

Don’t get me wrong it looks yummy but doesn’t really looks like a cake. It looks more like a Blondie bar or brownie right?

I see what you mean Maxine if you compare to a layer cake. This is a very old vintage recipe that was made in a 13 x 9 pan.

Which apples would you recommend? I want to make this but need to get apples

I used Granny Smith. Braeburn would be good too. You will love this cake. Thanks for asking JoJo!

This cake was simple to make and so delicious. I used regular walnuts, you can sure tell its old by the ingredients! You will love this recipe.
