Apple Cake

25 Jan

I’ve served this for family gatherings a couple of times. It’s great with your morning coffee, or for dessert with a dollop of fresh whipped cream or vanilla ice cream. This was a staple comfort food at Grandma’s house.

2 cups sugar
1 cup oil
3 eggs
1 tsp vanilla

2 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon (optional)
1 tsp nutmeg (optional)

3 cups chopped apples
1 cup chopped nuts (walnuts or other)

Mix sugar, oil, vanilla, and eggs in a large bowl. In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and optional cinnamon and/or nutmeg. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients, mix until blended. Fold in chopped apples and nuts. Pour into a greased 13×9 inch baking dish. Bake at 350 degrees for one hour, or until a toothpick or knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
