If you read about my sweet little Service House community, you may remember that mentor I mentioned. One night we had her and her family over for dinner and she brought her world-famous, blogger-approved Apple Cake for dessert! Now is the perfect time to try it, it is so “fall-ey!” And I must say, we ate every last crumb. Recipe Below:
4 cups fresh tart apples, peeled and diced
¾ cup oil
1 Tbsp vanilla
Mix together in a bowl
3 cups flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
½ tsp. salt
1 Tbsp. (or more) cinnamon
Stir dry ingredients together in another bowl.
Add the dry mixture with the apple mixture.
In a separate bowl (you can re-use the one from earlier) mix together:
3 cups sugar
Combine all ingredients together and stir until evenly blended. It will be chunky and thick.
Place in a well-greased and floured bundt pan. (Pam with flour, Pam’s Baking Spray, works best!)
Bake at 325 degrees for 1 hour 15 min- 1 hour 30 minutes. It is tricky to know when it is done because the top puffs and forms a crunchy exterior and the inside is moist.
Let cool in the pan for 10 minutes then turn out onto a cake plate.
