Fresh Apple Cake
Fresh Apple Cake
1 cup light brown sugar
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup olive oil
3 cups of flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 teaspoons vanilla
3 cups apples, peeled and diced
1 cup nuts, chopped (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Beat butter. Add sugar and beat until creamy. Add eggs one at a time, then add oil. Beat this mixture 3 minutes and add dry, sifted ingredients. Mix well. Add apples, nuts, and vanilla. Grease and flour tube or bundt pan and add batter. Bake for 1 hour.
I use olive oil, but for a milder taste, use vegetable oil.
Serves 12 to 15.
I adapted this recipe from Savannah Style, a cookbook of the Junior League of Savannah.

3 cups vanilla? :)
Thanks for sharing the delicious sounding recipe.
Thank you for noticing the 3 cups of vanilla!!!!!!! Beth
lovely color and sweetness in this post! A wonderful recipe too : )
My apologies friends...this recipe had some typos. I have corrected them. There IS flour in this cake and there are not 3 cups of vanilla!! Beth
Looks delicious, Beth!!! And such sweet photos... he clearly loved it.
And I really enjoyed your post on sticks... I love it when children use nature to play with... who needs plastic toys when you have sticks!
Blessings and magic.
Oh Rats! I was wondering about the flour. I will have to try it with gluten free flour; I'll let you know how it turns out. It sounds yummy. Thank you.
Hi, Appleshoe! I lived through no wheat days with my youngest when he was a baby! It's hard! Do you know the Gluten Free Baker book? Beth
