Apple Cake

Sometimes you have just a few apples left over from a previous recipe and you want  to use them up.  Most apple recipes call for more than just a few apples, so this recipe is a good one for only a few (4 cups diced).  This recipe does not say what type of apples to use, but I use granny smith apples.  This is not a cobbler, so it will not be wet like a cobbler, but you can serve it like a cobbler…but it’s a cake!


Happy Cake Baking!




4 cups diced peeled apples

1/2 cup cooking oil

2 cups sugar

2 eggs, well beaten

2 cups flour

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 and 1/2 teaspoons soda

1 to 2 teaspoons cinnamon

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 cup chopped nuts or raisins




Combine apples, oil and sugar.  Add eggs.  Combine and add dry ingredients.  Stir in vanilla and nuts.  Spread into a greased 13 x 9 inch baking dish.  Bake at 350 F or 45 minutes or until done.

This recipe can be cut in half using an 8 x 8 baking dish at 350 for 30 to 35 minutes.
