Fresh Apple Cake

Germany, 1993, what a long time ago.
Wonderful, lifelong friends were made in that quaint village of Sippersfeld.
Many meals were shared in each others homes and
Many unforgettable memories were made.

One of my favorite memories was going across the street to the man who sold apples, I bought a huge basket (purchased at the basket factory - yet another great memory) full of tasty apples.

I brought them home and promptly make Fresh Apple Cake.

Kym Thurman came over and we ate most of  the still warm dessert.

Kris, Allison and Baylee played together, and Kym and I visited for hours.

What a sweet memory!
