Grandma Jackson's One-Bowl Apple Cake

Lauri Brown sent me this recipe and I changed it just a little, to make it even easier to bake. I also added a topping. You would not have to do that—but it is a nice touch! The cake is moist and delicious, and is the perfect ratio of apples to cake. Serve warm with whipped cream or ice cream.
