One of my favorite things about being a B&B host is that I get to make and share my family recipes every day with our guests. This one from my Great Grandma Farnham is a particular guest favorite. We serve it at breakfast with an assortment of other baked goods and fruit and of course Jim’s individual omelets.
Great Grandma Farnham (1886-1961) lived in a pre-Civil War 2-story house in Missouri across the road from Grandpa Emil & Grandma Edna. She came over to help Grandma Edna (1908-1994) every day after breakfast. She was a delightful companion and a hard worker with many skills: baking, canning, laundry, ironing, sewing and soap making.
For this recipe, Great Grandma Farnham grew the apples on her farm. Enjoy!
My Great Grandma Farnham’s Chopped Apple Cake
1 ½ cup sugar
½ cup butter
2 tsp cinnamon
Pinch of salt
1½ cup flour
1 ½ tsp baking soda
3 cups chopped apples
Nuts and raisins – optional
I like it with pecans. Dad likes it with Missouri Black Walnuts. Both are good. But I leave them out for serving at Jubilee Suites to avoid any allergy issues.
Bake 45 minutes @ 350 degrees.
