Today I want to share a family recipe for Apple Cake. I'm posting it now and not it the fall because it is a great cake to take camping or to the shore or on a weekend getaway. It stays moist and good for several days and is fast and easy to make; well, you do have to peel and slice the apples. The photo shows the cake in an aluminum pan because I baked it to take to a cookout.
Hope you like this as much as my family does.
- 5 eggs
- 1½ cups sugar
- 1 cup vegetable oil
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- dash of salt
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 4-6 medium tart apples, peeled, cored and sliced
- Sugar and cinnamon for sprinkling
Beat the eggs, sugar, and oil in a large bowl until well mixed. Add the flour, baking powder, salt, and vanilla. Mix well.
Pour one third of the batter into the bottom of the prepared pan. Arrange the apple slices over top in a single layer. Sprinkle on cinnamon and sugar to taste. Pour the remaining batter on top. Sprinkle with more cinnamon and sugar.
Bake for about 40 minutes, until brown on top and toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
