Grandma's Apple Torte

This delicious Apple Torte Cake was one of Grandma’s many treats that our family has enjoyed through the years. We always looked foreword to Grandma making this delightful morsel for special family gathering and holidays. Many of our guests ask for the recipe and I am always happy to share it with everyone.
