Several months ago I printed out a recipe that Gooseberry Patch had posted on their Facebook page for an apple cake. I had the recipe pinned to the icebox so it would be readily available when I finally decided to try it. Well, today was the day I thought I'd give it a whirl. The original recipe did not call for an icing but I thought a quick vanilla glaze would go perfectly atop it.
