Apple Cake

19 Aug



This recipe was brought in to work by one of our volunteers.  She is the sweetest lady.  I am not a big fan of anything with apples, just never have been.  This is really good, it is very moist and dense.  I made it tonight for my husband, as he tends to like apple things, like apple cobbler, apple pie, etc.   I served it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and it was perfect.




  • 3 eggs
  • 1 c. oil
  • 2 c. sugar
  • 1 tsp. soda
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 3 c. plain flour
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 3 c. peeled, chopped apples
  • 1 c. nuts

Beat eggs, add oil, then sugar and vanilla.  Sift flour, soda, salt and cinnamon.  Add to egg mixture, fold in apples and nuts.  Bake at 375° for about an hour.
I  have picky eaters, so I only put in 1/2 cup of pecan chips (you can use whatever nuts you like), and I ended up taking it out of the oven at just over 45 minutes and probably could have taken it out 5 minutes earlier.  You have to check it every so often.  I served it warm, with a scoop of vanilla ice-cream.  It is delicious.  My 3 yr. old son said, “Mommy can you thank that nice girl at work for the cake.”.   The lady that gave me this recipe is in her 70’s so I am sure she will be tickled when I relay his message.  Happy Baking!
