Lisa's Story

When my mother passed away, a close family friend made us two fantastic cakes. This apple cake is one of them! Both my father and my boyfriend couldn't stop raving about this one and said they could eat this cake all day, every day. When I took this cake to work for a carry-in, a coworker said it was the best thing she's ever had in her mouth. I told her she's a newlywed, so she better be careful what she says ;)

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
I wish we could keep one of these in the oven at all times... it smells a-maz-ing! (Super tasty and moist, too.)

Ingredients

CREAM IN A LARGE BOWL OR STAND MIXER:
2 stick
margarine
2 c
sugar
ADD:
2
large eggs
IN A SEPARATE BOWL, COMBINE:
2 1/2 c
all purpose flour
2 tsp
baking powder
1 tsp
baking soda
1/8 tsp
salt
2 tsp
cinnamon
ADD DRY INGREDIENTS TO THE MARGARINE MIXTURE. MIX IN:
3 c
finely chopped apples
1 c
chopped walnuts
2-3 Tbsp
milk
GLAZE
3/4 c
sugar
1/2 c
margarine
1/4 c
buttermilk
1 Tbsp
light corn syrup
1/4 tsp
baking soda
1 tsp
real vanilla extract

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Follow the above steps to make the cake batter.
2
Grease and flour a 9x13 pan Spread apple cake batter evenly in pan.
3
Bake at 350 degrees for 50 minutes to 1 hour, or until a toothpick comes out without raw batter on it.
4
While cake is baking, combine all the glaze ingredients except the vanilla in a medium pan. Stir and cook to a rolling boil. Remove from heat and add 1 teaspoon of vanilla.
5
Pour and spread glaze over hot cake as soon as the cake is removed from the oven.
6
Let cake cool completely before serving. The longer it sits, the better it gets!

    Can I use butter, I never use margerine, too much fat in it? Thank you.

    Rose, I always use real butter even if the recipe says margarine. If the recipe specifically says margarine only, then I follow those instructions the first time I make the recipe. Hope that helped! :)

    Has anyone tried using buttermilk in the cake too instead of regular milk? Since there is buttermilk in the glaze I was thinking of trying it in the cake too. Or is it too thick for that? This cake sounds so delicious! Thanks for the recipe.

    Nancy I make the very similar KY BUTTER CAKE with buttermilk and I make another similar apple cake that calls for buttermilk....so I am betting buttermilk in this would be delicious! I use buttermilk every chance I can! =)
