In about 1968, we moved next door to a family with seven little boys. Their mother gave me this recipe. It is really delicious. You can frost it, or just eat it like it is.

This cake often appeared on the Sunday dinner table during the depression and the war years. It's been in my family for three generations. During the "olden days," many families could not afford the luxury of the traditional fruitcakes, so this recipe became the popular Christmas fruitcake of the poor.

This is a lightly spiced stack cake that uses dried apples, though the apples are not spiced. This cake tastes even better after it has been stored for a couple of days.
