Connie”s Apple Cake Recipe

READY IN: 16mins
Recipe by wherzztoto

My mom used to make this during the holidays. A very long time family tradition, been around for many generations. This is a very sweet, rich dessert, moist and a bit crumbly because of the chunks of apples and pecans. Not the 'normal' birthday cake-like texture. Great with a big glass of milk or hot cup of coffee. The mix ends up being very thick and a little stiff to mix, but don't worry... it is totally worth it. Warning: This apple cake is addictive! Thanks Mom, we all miss you dearly!

Ingredients Nutrition


  2. Mix all dry ingredients with Chopped Apples.
  3. Add Canola Oil, (I make this at least 3 times a year and YES you put in 1 and one half cups of canola oil, this is a correct measurement), Vanilla Extract and beaten Eggs.
  4. Mix well. Batter will be stiff and a bit difficult to mix, but it is totally worth it!
  5. Bake approximately 1½ hours in lightly greased (10 x 14 ) pan. Start checking cake after about an hour, since everyone's stove heats a little differently. You can use a toothpick or whatever you usually do to check your baking.
  6. Option: Of course you can make this in a muffin pan too but you would have to adjust the cooking time.
