Apple Cake

Here’s a little homemade dessert recipe that my mom sent me that is almost as easy as buying a box.

You’ll need:

-1 cup margarine

-2 cups sugar

-2 eggs

-4 large apples

-2 cups flour

-1/2 tsp. baking soda

-1 tsp. baking powder

-1/2 tsp. salt

-2 tsp. cinnamon

-1 cup nuts (optional)


Seriously, I don’t really consider myself much of a baker but it’s hard to mess this up. Start off by preheating the oven to 350 degrees. Melt the margarine and mix it up with the sugar and eggs in a large bowl. Cut the apples into slices like you would see in an apple pie (if you have an apple corer it is helpful, but an old fashioned knife works just as well). Stir the apples, and nuts if you like, into the bowl. Next stir in the remaining ingredients. Guess what? You’re already almost done! Pour the batter into a 13″x9″ greased pan and bake for about 40-45 minutes.

If you serve these when they’re still warm it will definitely be a crowd pleaser (but the cold leftovers are also excellent, especially heated up for about ten seconds in the microwave). If you really want to win over the crowd serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and drizzle everything in caramel sauce. Yum.

    Your recipe for apple cake sounds delicious. I am definately going to try baking one when I go home over Thanksgiving break. I am not much of a cook so its great that the recipes are easy to follow and don’t require a lot of ingredients. Thanks again for the recipe. I am definitely going to eat it with ice cream on top! Do by chance have any good recipes to suggest for making apple pie?

    I know everyone thinks this…but my mom makes the best apple pie in the world. I’ll steal her recipe and get it up on here, it won’t be as easy as the apple cake, but it soooo well worth it. I’m e-mailing her right now!
