Yummy Apple Cake

Yummy Apple Cake

Two weeks ago, there was an announcement in the Jewish Standard about the “Holocaust Survivor Cookbook” noting an event sponsored by Chabad of Passaic County with the book’s creator, Joanne Caras. Chani Gurkov of Chabad reported back that the March 4 event was a success with 40 people attending and 48 books sold. One of the recipes we published from a Holocaust survivor in Linden seems to be missing a few ingredients. With that in mind, (and in answer to the phone calls with readers who tried the recipe unsuccessfully), here is a tried and true delicious apple cake submitted by our own, Jane Carr, here at the office.
