Apple Cake

November 14, 2012

I just finished eating a piece of this delicious apple cake, still warm and soft. I was inspired by a recipe from one of my favorite blogs, Smitten Kitchen. The order to assemble the ingredients is different from regular cake recipes, but it works very well.


  • 6 McIntosh apples
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 4 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 3/4 cups flour, sifted
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 cups sugar
  • 1/4 cup orange or apple juice
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 4 eggs


  1. In a bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder and salt.
  2. In another bowl, combine sugar, oil, juice and vanilla extract.
  3. Mix the wet ingredients with the dry ingredients, add the eggs one by one and mix well.
  4. Preheat oven to 350F and grease a tube pan.
  5. Peel, core and chop the apples. Mix with sugar and cinnamon.
  6. Pour half of the batter into the pan, spread half the apples on top, then pour the remaining batter over the apples and arrange the remaining apples on top.
  7. Bake about 1:15 or until a toothpick comes out clean.
