Need your best Apple Cake Recipe
My dad's birthday is next week and asked me for an apple birthday cake. Does anyone have a great standout recipe?
What this lacks in fanciness it makes up for in moist deliciousness:
My mom's apple cake:
350 oven, 1 hr 15 mins.
4-5 sliced apples, tossed with cinnamon and brown sugar
3 cups flour
3 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. vanilla
2 cups sugar
1 cup oil
1/2 cup orange juice
Grease and flour tube pan. Pour a little more than half of the batter into the pan, spread about half of the apples, and then cover with the rest of the batter. Use the remaining apples for the top. (I sprinkle a little more cinn. on top before baking.)
Be sure to bake so it’s not soggy, but don’t overbake
Hi yannie, I just prepared your "mom's apple cake" recipe, and made a slight modification since I had 3 eggs instead of two, and reduced the sugar from 2 cups to 1 cup, and oil to 1/2 cup, increasing orange juice to 3/4 cup, and compensating by using 2 1/2 cups flour, leaving remaining ingredients the same. Placed 1/2 batter in bottom of bundt pan, then 6 cortland apples cut up, followed by remaining batter on top. Baked at 350 for 1 hour. Perfect results.
Do a search on google for Balzano Apple Cake. I got the Balzano Apple Cake recipe from the NY Times a few years ago and it is super. Balzano Apple Cake only uses a half cup of flour with 5 Apples.
