Apple Cake

Every fall my mom always would make me her delicious apple cake. For the last couple years, after apple picking, I've called her for the recipe so I could use up some of the apples. I figured if I put the recipe in my blog, not only can I share it with everyone, but I can stop misplacing it and bugging her for it year after year, after year. In anticipation of this year's cake I bought an apple peeler/corer at Christmas Tree Shop!

Ingredients:
3 eggs
2 cups sugar
1 cup oil
3 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
3 cups of apples (peeled, cored, and chopped)
1 tub of cream cheese frosting


My new apple peeler/corer

Directions:
  • Pre-heat oven to 325oF and grease a Bundt cake pan
  • Combine eggs, sugar, and oil in one medium mixing bowl
  • Combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt in a large mixing bowl
  • Add the egg/sugar/oil mixture to the dry ingredients and stir - the batter will be very thick and difficult to mix
  • Add the apples to the batter and mix well
  • Pour into the Bundt cake pan and cook for 45 - 60 minutes or until cooked all the way through
  • Warm the frosting until it's pourable, drizzle over the cake

Give me some with a huge glass of ice cold soy milk please...

YOUR FAMILY SECRET RECIPE!!!

Wow, I'm too stingy for that! You should add her name the the cake name. It'll make it that much more special.

Last year I lost my "Kansas City Carrot Cake" recipe. It was the best! All I remember is the 3 cups of oil added. Needless to say, it was moist!
