A delicious moist white cake with layers of apple and cinnamon. When my grandmother was a young bride she made this cake weekly for my grandfather. When I was single and in the dating world, she told me "this is a cake to catch a man with." (kosher - pareve)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix the sugar, juice, eggs, oil and vanilla together in a mixer at medium speed for about 10 minutes, until smooth.
  2. Sift the flour, baking powder and salt together, and slowly add to the wet mixture, scraping down the sides of the bowl to mix thoroughly.
  3. Mix the apples, sugar and cinnamon in a separate bowl.
  4. Spray a bundt pan with non-stick spray.
  5. Pour half of the batter in the bundt pan, then top with half of the apple mixture.
  6. Alternate layers again to finish the batter, then the apples.
  7. Bake at 350 degrees F for about 70 minutes, or until done.
  8. Cool cake partially in pan, then invert cake onto a cooling rack to finish cooling.
  9. This also makes great muffins, but cut the baking time down to about 45-50 minutes for muffins.

yummy cake.I used apple juice because I was out of orange juice.I also reduced the amount of oil (1 cup=16 Tablespoons.I used 13 tablespoons). It's important to remember that the top of the cake browns before the cake itself is ready.Place aluminum foil on top of the cke and keep baking until a toothpick comes out clean.

I made a cake with this, and it was fantastic. I added an extra teaspoon of vanilla, and cinnamon . We really enjoyed this one, and will make again. Thanks for sharing.

This is a very nice cake - I'm afraid my Granny's apple cake will always be my #1 favorite, though. I made a few changes to "healthify" it, and it adapted beautifully! I use 1 cup whole grain flour in place of one of the cups all-purpose, 1/2 cup applesauce + 1/2 cup canola oil in place of the 1 cup oil, Recipe#289392 for 2 of the eggs, and 2 tsp. cinnamon instead of the 1 tsp. called for. It was really good - thanks for sharing! made for Went to Market April 2008.
