Need your best Apple Cake Recipe
Perhaps not the most picturesque cake (sorry for the darkness of the photo), but I recently made this torta di mele al burro (http://ths.gardenweb.com/forums/load/... - scroll down a bit for the recipe) for a dinner party, and it disappeared so quickly I didn't even get seconds!
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.
