I remember in Romania falls in  my childhood were full of apples, italian prunes, grapes and watermelons....
When Grapes were  available on fruit stands,,,, I knew fall is here and will start soon! My mom use to make a lot of desert with apples, the one we  picked  from neighborhood orchards!
One of these deserts was apple cake that my mother always insisted that it is GERMAN apple cake....I was surprises to find in this blog/site KITCHME exactly named so!!!
Yesterday my grandson and I we made these recipe and everyone love it!

My NOTE! I added crumbled walnuts on half of the cake, I was not sure everybody like it!
