My Apple Dapple Cake Recipe
This cake is one that my husband and many of our friends look forward to me making every year. I use fresh, locally grown apples from the apple grower who lives right down the road from us. He has the best apples! As always, I modified the recipe I had found many years ago in our local paper. I adapted it to fit our tastes and in my opinion, make it better than the original recipe. This is my version. I’m telling ya’, it’s like Autumn’s best flavors and aromas all rolled into one amazingly moist and delicious treat.
APPLE DAPPLE CAKE
1-1/2 cups cooking oil
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup light brown sugar, loosely packed
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 teaspoon plain flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon soda
2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
3 cups apples, peeled and chopped into bite size chunks (I use Red or Golden Delicious apples because they are sweet and get softer when cooked. But any apple of choice is good.)
Mix first 5 ingredients until well blended. Sift the next four and add to above. Fold in nuts and apples last. Mix by hand until batter is stiff. Bake in greased and floured Bundt/tube pan in preheated 350 degrees oven for 1 hour or 9″ x 13″ pan for 30 – 45 minutes. Allow to cool for 10 – 15 minutes to turn the Bundt/tube cake out onto a cake plate.
TIP: You can serve with just a little warmed spice applesauce poured over the slice for extra goodness.
From my at home world to yours…..Enjoy your slice of Autumn! And please let me know how you like this family favorite recipe.
