Apple Cake | Recipe

Tuesday, January 03, 2012

This was the very first cake I ever baked for my husband. And every time the weather turns cool, he asks for it. He's not a desserts guy, so I know why he loves this one. Its sweetness comes from the apples, and I use brown sugar- gives the cake a more subtle sweetness than white, in my opinion. You can also add chopped pecans, about a cup should do.

I n g r e d i e n t s:
3 large green apples, cored, peeled & chopped into 1/2 inch cubes
3 eggs
3 cups of flour
2 cups light brown sugar
1-1/3 cup vegetable oil
1/2 tablespoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees, and grease a bundt pan with real butter. You can use cooking spray, but I always prefer real, whole, unsalted butter.
Sift together your flour, cinnamon, baking soda & salt and set aside. Next throw your vegetable oil, sugar & eggs into the bowl of your electric mixer, and mix on high. I use the paddle attachment for this one so the apple chunks don't get stuck. If you're using a handheld mixer, chop your apples much smaller.

Turn your mixer to medium, and fold in your flour mixture, little by little. Once that is mixed, toss in your apples slowly. Add in your vanilla and mix thoroughly. It's ok if the apples begin to break apart. Turn your mixer off, and transfer the batter into your bundt pan. Pop it in the oven for 45-50 minutes. Depending on your oven, this may be shorter/longer. Once a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, your cake is done. Remove the pan from the oven and set aside on a cooling rack. Once the cake is room temp, flip the pan over to remove your cake, cut a slice, pour yourself a cup of coffee, and enjoy.
