This moist flavorful cake is an old standby for potlucks and picnics. My sister gave me the recipe after she got tired of making it for me so often.
- In large bowl, beat eggs and oil until smooth.
- Add next 6 ingredients and mix well.
- Fold in apples.
- Pour into greased 9 by 13 pan.
- Bake at 350F degrees for 50-55 minutes.
I thought this cake was wonderful! It was so simple to make. As others have said, the most difficult part is peeling the apples. After that, it takes 5 minutes to prepare everything. Also as others have said, the dough was incredibly thick and difficult to stir prior to the addition of the apples. I only added 1 cup of sugar instead of the instructed 2 cups and I thought the cake was the perfect amount of sweetness. The only other change I made was that I baked the cake for only about 40 minutes, as opposed to the recommended 50-55 minutes. When I checked on the cake it looked golden brown so I took it out and it was perfectly moist. I highly recommend this recipe!
This cake was pretty amazing. I am glad other reviewers mentioned the thickness of the batter. Without these warnings I would have been very hesitant as it really doesn't seem like enough for the amount of apples. I reduced the sugar to 1.5 cups and baked it for only 45 minutes. Easy and delicious. I plan to make this for my next potluck. Thanks so much! This is a winner.
Really, really good cake! Forgot to rate/review it the first time I made it. I add a bit more of the spices (personal taste) and use about half palm sugar. It's excellent just as is, though -- no need to change anything. Thanks for posting this, MizzNezz.
