Apple Cake

I’ve made this cake about three or four times in as many weeks. Every time it has come out quite tasty. I’ve used both a bundt pan and a pyrex 9×13 to cook it up. I’ve tossed some of the apples on the bottom of the pan and put the rest in batter, or mixed them all in the batter. Basically, it’s a hard cake to screw up. Cake’s a bit of a misnomer as it’s more like a delicious apple muffin. Slather some frosting on it, either a glaze or some cream cheese frosting if you want a more cake-like experience. I imagine it could also be turned into muffins easily, just adjust the bake time.

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 Cups sugar
  • 1 Cup vegetable oil
  • 3 Eggs
  • 2 Tsp vanilla
  • 1 Tbsp flax meal (optional)
  • 2 3/4 Cups flour
  • 1 Tsp salt
  • 1 Tsp baking powder
  • 1 Tbsp (heaping) cinnamon
  • 1/2 Tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 Tsp cloves
  • 1 Cup walnuts
  • 1/4 Cup dried blueberries (optional)
  • 4-6 Apples, diced (any good cooking apples- I’ve used cortlands and crispins before)

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Chop the apples and coat with a dash of cinnamon.
  3. Mix the sugar, oil, eggs, and vanilla together in a bowl.
  4. Combine the flax (optional), flour, salt, and spices together in a separate bowl.
  5. Mix the flour mixture into the egg and sugar mixture until combined.
  6. Stir in the walnuts and dried berries (optional).
  7. Fold in the chopped apples.
  8. Pour into an oiled 9×13 pan or a bundt pan.
  9. Bake at 350 degrees for 50-60 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean.

Try not to eat it all in one day, it’s that tasty!
