Yummy Sweet Apples

Have you noticed how expensive apples are getting?
My friend and neighbor Ginger has an apple tree full of apples that are just starting to ripen; so Elizabeth and I picked some today.
We ate some of the apples right away and then I peeled and diced some of them for an apple cake. 
The last time I made this cake I made a few notes next to the recipe so I would remember to make adjustments when I made the cake again; such as the batter is very thick so I need to add milk to thin it somewhat.
This is the best apple cake I have ever made. The recipe is found in a cookbook my sister-in-law gave me for Christmas one year.
