One of my favorite desserts is an apple cake and this recipe is still the one I always go back to because I love it’s moistness and flavor. As I am not quite a great baker, sometimes it comes out of the pan beautifully and well…. other times it comes out as you will see below but I love this cake so I am posting the recipe and the pictures of my “flop” cake…. My kids ate it all nevertheless!
Start with 6-8 apples, pared and thinly sliced. Then sprinkle them with 1/2 cup of white or brown sugar & 2 tsp of cinnamon. I love the scent of it all mixed up!
Next in a bowl beat 2 eggs, 1 cup of sugar & 1 tsp of vanilla until it is nice and fluffy. Once it is nice and fluffy beat in 1/2 cup of oil.
Prepare the dry ingredients separately,
1 1/2 Cups of Flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
Next add liquid alternately with dry ingredients and beat just until smooth. Spoon half of the batter into a lightly greased 9 “ square baking pan or in what I like to use a bundt pan.
Spread it out evenly with a rubber spatula then add the apples which have been mixed with the cinnamon & sugar.
Now cover the apples with the remaining batter, it is a bit tricky to spread but it just takes some time to do with a spatula.
Sprinkle with icing sugar if you like, I don’t because for me there is more than enough sugar in this recipe.
Bake 350 for 50-60 minutes, until it is nicely browned.
Now comes my “flop” photo… usually comes out quite nicely but this time it didn’t so I resorted to patching it up as best as I could!
In my house it is not always about how it looks sometimes but how yummy it is!
Last piece is always the best if I can get it!
