Apple Dapple Wacky Cake

Recently (and I use that term as loosely as the Seven Dwarfs did when Snow White asked them when they had last washed…) I entered a giveaway over at the blog of Chef Dennis – More Than a Mount  Full: a Culinary Journey.  I was one of the winners chosen.  He and Girard’s Salad Dressings gave me a variety of four bottles of those pretty gold labeled salad dressings.  The stipulation in winning, however, was that I create a recipe using one of the dressings.  When I read about Girard’s Apple Poppy Seed Salad Dressing, I immediately knew I wanted to make a dessert with it.  Apple Cake.  A Frugal Apple Cake.  A Delicious Frugal Apple Cake.
