Made Apple cake over the weekend and wanted to share the recipe with all of you.

When apples have been setting on the counter and the family won’t eat them because they have lost their crispness.

This is a great recipe to use them in.

First turn your oven onto 350°

grease and flour your bundt pan (I used baking Pam)

 You will need:

  • 6 apples (peeled, cored and chopped)
  • 1 Tablespoon cinnamon
  • 5 Tablespoons white granulated sugar

Place these ingredients in a bowl and and toss with the sugar and cinnamon.

Next mix in another bowl:

  • 3 Cups all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

In another final bowl mix:

  • 3 Eggs (beaten)
  • 2 Cups Brown sugar (packed)
  • 1 Cup Vegetable oil
  • 2 teaspoon Vanilla
  • 1 Cup Chopped walnuts (optional)

Mix all wet ingredients together

Add the dry to the wet and get ready for a work out as this batter is VERY thick!Put half of the very thick batter in the pan

(I used my fingers to get the batter to cover the bottom of the pan)next layer is 1/2 of the seasoned chopped applesplace

the rest of the batter on top of the apples

and follow that up with the other 1/2 of the seasoned apples

Bake at 350° for at least 1 hour to 1 hour 20 minutes.

Check for doneness by poking a knife in and it coming out mostly clean or the cake pulling away from the sides of the pan

Made this cake for Thanksgiving dinner exactly as described here and there were no leftovers, the only tedious part was to dice those apples - the rest was a breeze. - Thanks so much for sharing this recipe.


Cynthia! That sounds too delish. WOW!


Mmm Mmm Goodness!!


I've used a similar recipe for years however, I don't have a layer of the apples. Just mix with the batter and bake in bread pans & we call it Apple Bread. It's so yummy! My friend also made a variation adding pumpkin (It's ready to try tomorrow). Thanks for posting this recipe.


I wonder if you could hollow out an apple (like for baked apples) then put cake mix in the hole and bake the cake that way. Maybe put some spices and a little brown sugar on the apple sides before putting the batter in? Then drizzle all with warm caramel when it comes out of the oven. Wonder if it would cook all the way down? What do you think? :) Happy Thanksgiving!
