Whenever I make Memere's apple cake recipe I can hear Memere calling Rick "My darling". All her grandchildren were her darlings. That's a pretty good seed to plant in any child's heart.
This is a really good recipe. I use Macintosh apples. I used coconut oil this year. Trust the recipe. It won't look right when mixing it up.
