Apple Cake Pictures........

This recipe was posted last week by Lily. I've been asleep at the wheel,[or made crazy by NaBloPoMo!]ever since.] This is, hands down, the most delicious apple cake ever! You just need to be sure it's cooked all the way through. You don't want mush, where scrumptious should be! So poke it with a skewer until it comes out clean....

Apple Cake

Poor long-suffering Molly, typed this recipe up for us when she was visiting in October after our apple picking excursion left us with a bounty of apples which led us into all sorts of baking adventures.

Molly would dearly love for me to give you the details on the recipe. I got it from Beth Schultz in Nashville, TN, a lovely gal who hosted a lovely cooking themed wedding shower for me and with whom I am no longer in contact -- as happens over and over again because I am a BAD communicator. The recipe came with an angel food cake pan and I do think fondly of Beth each time I make it. Unfortunately, I don't make it often because I am the main consumer of baked goods in our house and I don't need to eat that much apple cake.

So, please, enjoy a slice for me when you make it.

Apple Cake

Before you start preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and grease an angel food or bundt cake pan.

3 large or medium apples,peeled, cored and thinly sliced

2 tsp cinnamon and 5 Ttbsp sugar---mix together and set aside.


3 cups flour [unsifted]

2 cups sugar

3 tsp baking powder

4 eggs

2 1/2 tsp vanilla

i cup of vegetable oil

1/4 cup orange juice

Beat together until smooth.

Pour half the batter into the greased pan.

Arrange half of the apple slices on top, and sprinkle with some of the cinnamon/sugar mixture.

Cover with layers of remaining batter, apples and cinnamon mixture.

Bake for one hour and fifteen minutes, or until done.
