Recipe For A Fall Favorite - Apple Cake

I had several fresh apples that needed used up in a hurry, so, this afternoon, I'm making a fall family cake! This time, though, I'm experimenting with cutting the amount of sugar called for in the recipe in half. Instead of using the two cups of sugar called for, I'm using one-cup of crystalized cane sugar and a half-cup of THM Super Sweet. I'll let you know how it turns out. If that works I will cut it by even more next time. 

Apple Cake


4 cups peeled, finely chopped apples
2 cups sugar (I generally use 6 tablespoons of THM Super Sweet now instead of sugar, but either will work)
1 cup oil (I use olive)
2 eggs, well beaten
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
3 cups flour (I use half unbleached white/half wheat)
2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup chopped nuts

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray 9 x 13 inch baking pan with non-stick cookingspray. In bowl stir together apples and sugar; let stand for 20 minutes, stirring often, to allow moisture to make juice. Add oil, eggs and vanilla to apples. Combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt; add to apple mixture. Stir in nuts. Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake for 45 minutes or until wooden toothpick inserted near center comes out clean. Top with sifted
powdered sugar.

    1. It is, Sandi! It's been a fall family favorite for many years.

  2. I love apples and apple cakes. I just need some fresh ones.

    1. Me, too, Lisa! I have just one apple left after making the cake. Will probably use it in baked apple toast in the morning.

  3. This looks very close to the apple chip cake recipe I'm getting ready to post over on my blog. An old recipe of my moms. Hers called for butter (actually, oleo but I use butter). Can't really go wrong with apple cake in any form though :)

    1. I'll have to check it out. I don't receive your blog posts in my email anymore. I wonder why? Anyway, I need to get over there and check things out. It's been waaayyyy too long! And, yes, I agree! You can never go wrong with apple cake in any form! Or butter! LOL! Blessings, dear friend! <3
