Mom's Apple Cake Recipe

It's no secret our homestead has a lot of apple trees. And while the crop is sparse this year, there are some recipes I make every year, regardless...because there would be a family revolt if I didn't. 😉 This moist, delicious apple cake is one of those recipes. I call it "Mom's Apple Cake" because my husband's mother has been making it for many years, using store bought apples. It is full of old fashioned yumminess, for sure! Plus, it's super easy to make.

Mom's Apple Cake Recipe

4 cups chopped baking apples (do not dice; peeling is optional. I never peel the apples, though.)

2 cups granulated cane sugar

1/2 cup olive oil or melted coconut oil

1 cup chopped walnuts (optional)

2 eggs, beaten

2 teaspoons real vanilla extract

2 cups all purpose flour

2 teaspoons baking soda

2 teaspoons cinnamon

1 teaspoon non-iodized salt

Mom's apple cake
Moist, apple-y goodness!


Don't dice the apples small. You want chunks approximately this size.

1. Grease a 9x13 inch baking pan. (I use coconut oil for this.) Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. OR 325 degrees F. if using a Pyrex pan.

2. In a large bowl, mix together the apples and sugar until thoroughly blended.

Stirring the sugar into the apple cake batter
Stir the apples and sugar together.

 3. Stir in the oil, nuts (if using), eggs, and vanilla.

Stir in the (optional) walnuts.

 4. In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt.

5. Stir the flour mixture into the apple mixture until well blended.

The batter will be quite thick.

6. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for 1 hour, or until the cake shrinks from the edges of the pan. (Do NOT use a toothpick or similar device to test doneness, or the cake will come out dry.)
