Things to Make - Apple Cake

untitled (9 of 32).jpg

I made a cake. This is sort of a big deal because I'm not much of a baker, let alone a cake maker. When the kids came home they said, "I didn't know you could make cakes, mommy. Is it someone's birthday?" Dan's reply wasn't much different.

But it's so cold outside. And cake tastes good. And this cake uses LOTS of apples, so it's practically a health food.

Anyways, we all loved my cake. It tastes like a rich apply coffee cake, so we ate some for breakfast too.



* 2 cups sugar
* 1 cup vegetable oil
* 3 eggs
* 3 cups flour
* 1 teaspoon baking soda
* 1/2 teaspoon salt
* 6 medium apples (golden delicious preferred) cored, peeled and diced
* 2 teaspoons vanilla extract


* 1 cup brown sugar
* 1 stick butter (1/2 cup)
* 1/4 cup milk

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly oil a 9x13 baking dish.
2. Mix sugar, oil, and eggs; beat well.
3. Add flour, baking soda, salt, apples, and vanilla; beat until thoroughly combined.
4. Scrape into the prepared baking dish.
5. Baked for 1 hour
6. To make the topping - boil together the brown sugar, butter, and milk for 2.5 minutes. Remove from heat.
7. Remove the cake from the oven and immediately poke the tines of a fork down through the cake (about 15 jabs).
8. Pour the topping over the cake.
9. Serve warm or let cool (note - this cake tastes especially good with vanilla ice cream; though, seriously, what doesn't?)
