Fall is synonymous with apples around here. We have two apple trees in our back yard and a local orchard about a mile away. This apple cake recipe from my Mother-in-law is probably my husband’s favorite way to eat some of those apples. It’s moist, fluffy, and the cinnamon smell fills your whole kitchen with a big autumn hug.
Nana makes her apple cake in a bunt pan. I used a 13×9 pan for mine and did not use quite as much of the apple mixture. (I only used 4 apples, instead of the 6 listed in the recipe.)
Apple Cake Recipe:
2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 cup of sugar
1/2 tsp salt
Combine and mix well in a large mixing bowl
In a floured and greased bundt pan pour half the batter. Add half the apple mixture. Pour remaining batter over apples, and top with the remaining apple mixture.
Bake at 350 for 1 1/2 hours to 2 hours. Check with a cake tester to make sure the cake is done.
