Abbington Green’s Apple Cake

So many of you have enjoyed this family recipe from our dear friend Wendy. We like to use a variety of apples when we make it so that you bake with the best and get the best of all of the apples!  We use apples from the local orchards in Hendersonville, NC, but you can use any good baking apples you have! 

Happy baking!
