Out of This World Apple Cake

 I found this recipe in my Mom’s collection but she notes that it came from Mrs. Wilkes Boarding House in Savannah, GA. She had a handwritten version with notes like “Bob’s Favorite”, “So Good”, and “Out of This World”, so it seems appropriate that I call it Out of This World Apple Cake because it’s really that delicious.
This recipe has been passed down for generations with the original handwritten version still available. The name came about when notes from the original recipe stated "So Good" and "Out of This World" so it was only right that it was named after what it really represented. When cooking this recipe, after you cut into it, it may seem like a disaster but it will surely not taste like one.
