Apple Cake

Meredith Bond

It’s that time of year again! Rosh Hashanah! Which, naturally, means apples! This year my daughter begged me to make an apple cake. I really like this recipe, so I thought I’d share it with all of you.

Here’s to a sweet New Year!


Apple Cake


You’ll need three bowls for this recipe:

Bowl #1 (a small bowl):

  • 2 cups + 2 Tbs flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • ½ tsp cloves or allspice

Bowl #2 (a medium bowl):

  • 4 cups peeled and chopped apples (one medium apple is about a cup)
  • 6 Tbs brandy or rum

Bowl #3 (a large bowl):

  • ½ cup vegetable oil  (did I mention that this was not low-fat?)
  • ½ cup apple sauce
  • 1 ½ cups sugar (or low in calories?)
  • 2 eggs


Instructions:Apple Cake Finished

  1. Put together the three bowls of ingredients.
  2. Heat the oven to 350  degrees.
  3. Add half the flour mixture to the apple mixture.
  4. Add the other half of the flour mixture to bowl #3 (the eggs, oil and sugar).
  5. Combine these two bowls (apples with the sugar).
  6. Put everything into either a Bundt pan (I just think apple cake should be in a Bundt pan), or a 13×9 inch baking pan.
  7. Bake for 1 hour.
  8. Keep everyone away from the cake (ie, hide it well) until you’re ready to serve it because it’s going to smell reeeallly good!
