Apple Cake

This cake is incredibly moist and delicious, even a few days later if it is kept well covered! Feel free to add nuts or if it is too sweet remove some of the sugar!

I do everything by hand including the mixing. However, this is a pretty thick batter so if you have a mixer it will help incorporate all the ingredients quickly,

Ingredients

FOR THE CHOPPED APPLES

6 medium
apples, mcintosh (or whatever kind you enjoy) peeled, cored and roughly chopped
1 Tbsp
cinnamon
1/2 Tbsp
nutmeg
2 Tbsp
white sugar
3 Tbsp
brown sugar
1/2 medium
lemon juice, fresh

FOR THE CAKE

2 3/4 c
sifted flour
1 Tbsp
baking powder
1 c
vegetable oil
1 c
white sugar
3/4 c
brown sugar
1/4 c
orange juice, fresh
2 1/2 tsp
vanilla extract
4 large
eggs

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Pre heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a tube cake pan (very very well), or whatever type of pan you would like to use. Keep in mind, this is a very large and dense cake and needs room to expand without spilling over! You need 3 bowls, one large and two medium sized.
2
First, peel core and chop the apples and toss them with the cinnamon, sugar and lemon juice in one of the medium sized bowls. Place these aside until later.
3
Mix together the flour, and baking powder in the large mixing bowl. In the other medium sized bowl wisk together oil, orange juice, sugar and vanilla.
4
Slowly begin to combine the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. After these are combined being to mix in the eggs one at a time. It is important to keep scraping down the sides of the bowl to make sure that all ingredients are mixed together very well.
5
There are two ways to finish this recipe and put it into the oven. I like to mix the apples into the batter after it is completed. However, some websites I have seen that make a cake similar to this like to layer the apples. It is up to your personal taste! Whatever you choose, is going to be fantastic.
6
Stick the cake into the 350 degree oven for about 1 and a 1/2 hours, or until a cake tester comes out clean!
