Fresh Apple cake

apple cake

Fall always brings memories of apples.  Lots of apples.  We would have fresh cider and would make applesauce and apple butter.  I would can jars and jars of spiced apples and make tons of apple pies and apple cakes.  Here is my favorite fresh apple cake recipe.

1 cup oil

2 cups sugar

2 eggs

2 tsp. vanilla

1 tsp. baking soda

1/2 tsp. salt

3 cups flour

2 tsp. cinnamon

3 cups chopped apples

1 cup nuts ( any type you want.  I use either walnuts or pecans)

Blend oil, sugar, eggs, vanilla.  Then add baking soda, salt, flour, cinnamon and fold in apples and nuts.  Pour into a greased and floured 9 x 13 inch pan.  Bake at 300 degrees for 50-60 minutes. Remove and set to the side. Make the icing.

1 cup sugar

3/4 cup evaporated milk

1 stick butter

Mix all ingredients in a saucepan.  Bring to a boil and boil for 3-5 minutes.  Pour over top of hot cake.  Allow to cool before cutting and serving cake. I like to serve this with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream or cinnamon ice cream.
