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 ;)

Blue Ribbon Recipe

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!

I've made it lots of times - it's my favorite - always peeled my apples and it turns out great no matter what kind of apples I choose.

I have made the recipe many times without peeling the apples. As moist as the cake is, nobody even notices the apples aren't even peeled. That is the beauty of this recipe, less effort with the apples! Hope it helps.

Kathy Hoxsey, I also have always peeled my apples. Sorry but I cannot help with the high altitude question. Hope your cake turned out good. This is an excellent recipe - super moist and very flavorful!
