Apple Cinnamon Cake-One Bowl, Great Smells...Yummy!


I had a request for a recipe for an Apple Spice Cake. I remembered that my mom had a recipe that she made often, so I searched my recipe box and found it. The great thing about this recipe is that you can eat it for dessert or for breakfast. You can dress it up with a dip of ice cream or whipped cream. It is really easy to prepare, all in one bowl and no mixer necessary.





Ingredients:

2/3 cup vegetable oil
1 cup sugar
1 egg
2 cups chopped apples (notice I didn’t even peel the apples, simply core them)
1 ½ cups flour
¼ tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup chopped nuts (I used walnuts, but pecans or almonds would work)
3 T. sugar mixed with 1 ½ tsp. cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In large bowl put everything except the cinnamon/sugar mix. The batter will be very stiff and crumbly. Put it in a 9” pan. I used a small rectangular pan because someone has my 9” square.



Sprinkle the top with the cinnamon/sugar mixture. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes. Enjoy!

Holly-I hope you like it. I dumped in a full teaspoon of salt when I made it, we ate it anyway! I guess that teaches me to cook when I don't feel great.

Koralee-I've just been cooking a long time. I really used to enjoy it, but with just 2 of us in the house, we don't eat as much. It is fun having a reason to cook again...gotta take those pictures!
