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!
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
- Put together the three bowls of ingredients.
- Heat the oven to 350 degrees.
- Add half the flour mixture to the apple mixture.
- Add the other half of the flour mixture to bowl #3 (the eggs, oil and sugar).
- Combine these two bowls (apples with the sugar).
- 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.
- Bake for 1 hour.
- 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!
