Tonight I’m having some family over for dinner of lemon Kale salad, fresh olive bread, homemade beef stew, whole grain pasta and Fresh Apple cake for dessert!
Ok this cake is easy and delicious! So delicious. Did I say delicious? Well it is!
Fearsome Beard’s Fresh Apple Cake
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
4 cups peeled then chopped Granny Smith apples, 2 cups flour, 2 cups sugar, 2 teaspoons baking soda, 3/4 teaspoon salt, 2 teaspoons cinnamon, 1/2 cup vegetable oil, 2 eggs, 1 teaspoon vanilla, (optional 1/2 cup chopped nuts of choice).
Place chopped apples in large mixing bowl. Break the two eggs over apples then add all other ingredients. Stir until well mixed into a creamy batter full of apple pieces. ( I chop my apples to fairly small pieces.)
Spray bundt pan with Bakers Joy ( or any other baking spray with flour in it) Spread batter into bundt pan and bake 1 hour.
Let cake cool in pan.
When cake is cool flip out onto cake plate and poke holes in it with a toothpick then make this glaze to pour on top.
Glaze: 1 stick real butter, 1 cup brown sugar, 1/4 cup milk, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla. Bring to boil stirring in sauce pan on stovetop. Boil stirring occasionally for 3 minutes. Pour over cooled cake.
I thank my sister in law, Doris, for this recipe.
