Our Favorite Apple Cake!

Back in our pre-kids days when my husband and I were both in college, we had no money. I used to budget $35 a week for groceries. We survived on pasta and peanut butter and jelly (Both of which we still eat a lot of. :)) Anyhow, a friend gave me this recipe and since it didn't require any expensive ingredients or fancy equipment, I made it. My husband LOVED it. I have made it every fall ever since. MissyMiss calls it "Daddy's cake". It is very simple, but delicious! Here is a pic of my 2 little helpers. This was the first time Bubby got to help with baking.



This is the cake prior to baking. The batter is VERY thick. It is so thick that you think you must have forgotten a liquid ingredient, or that you put in too much flour. It is so thick, but it comes out perfect.


Below is a picture of the cake after baking. It looks very similar to pre-baking in the picture. :) But I assure you, once it is baked it has a crispy, golden top and your house will have a delicious smell.


Here is the piece that I just ate....yummo! It is delicious with vanilla ice cream on top. I didn't have any, so I used Cool Whip...in a can! Who doesn't love Cool Whip in a can??



Anyhow, here is the recipe. The recipe is VERY simple. It is a hearty cake...very comfort food-ish. Hope you enjoy!

Ingredients:
1 cup oil
2 cups sugar
2 eggs
3 cups flour
3 apples, cut up
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon

1. Preheat oven to 375. Grease 13X9 pan.
2. Mix wet ingredients
3. In a different bowl, mix dry ingredients
4. Mix wet ingredients into dry ingredients.
5. Fold in apples
6. Spoon into pan
7. Bake 45 min

Enjoy! (see...I told the recipe is very simple!)

Hi Running Mama,

This looks yummy! How many apples do you need for this recipe? I might make this tonight if I have enough apples. :-)
