Apple Cake



This is another family recipe and comes from Grandma Lois, and has been at every family event since I can remember.  With a bowl full of apples that needed to be used, I talked to mom and got the recipe and made it.  I used three different varieties of apples, and used half whole wheat flour and half all purpose.  Turned out moist and sweet.  I think a drizzle of caramel sauce will set this off perfectly tonight for dessert.


Apple Cake

Dry Ingredients

3 cups flour (1/2 whole wheat can be used)

1 tsp salt

1 1/2 tsp soda

1 cup chopped pecans or walnuts

WET ingredients

2 cups sugar

1 1/2 cups canola oil

2 eggs beaten

2 tsp vanilla


Throw the apples into the wet ingredients and mix, then dry and then the nuts. The batter will be VERY dense. Place in a 13 X 9 baking dish and bake in a 325 oven for 25 minutes, then turn up the heat to 350 and bake another 25-30 minutes or till center comes clean with a toothpick.



About heylaydee

An average cook, an enthusiasm for experimenting and trying new things, is the reason for this blog. That and I found myself in the “empty nest” syndrome and needed an outlet. So I picked up the camera that was collecting dust, got out the pile of recipes, contacted friends and family for their favorites and starting cooking again. What could be better than a glass of wine, a hot stove, and creativity? Come along for the ride. I will be blogging about food, family, and anything else that inspires me.
