Apple Cake

READY IN: 1hr 50mins
Recipe by RedWonder

This is my mother-in-law’s recipe. It’s delicious, and I’m not even a big apple fan! We live in apple country, so around harvest time I make this a lot! It’s great as a dessert with some vanilla ice cream, and doubles nicely as a breakfast coffee cake.

Excellent moist cake. I would recommend baking it a little longer than recommended. As the other reviewer recommended, cut the spices down dramatically. The posted amounts just can't be correct. I used 2 teaspoons vanilla and 1 tablespoon cinnamon and it was perfect.
