Fresh Apple Cake

I wasn't going to make this cake. It's a recipe from my Grandma Blackburn. I've only just begun to like apple pie (yes, I know that's odd) and I just didn't think apple in cake would be my thing. I mentioned this to my older sister Angie. She remembered this cake and told me it was a winner. Mental note: Listen to your sister. She's right.
My grandma had tons of apple trees, I wonder if it would constitute an apple orchard. She made incredible applesauce and once when I asked her if I could get the recipe, she just smiled and said she didn't have one. She just takes the apples and makes applesauce.
Don't be fooled. This recipe is basically cooked apples in brown sugar with brown sugar topping. But, how could you go wrong with that?
