This cake is a favorite of my mother. She passed the recipe to me and now I bake it for her for special occasions. It's perfect for breakfast, with a hot cup of coffee or as a special dessert, warmed with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Cake and pie lovers unite over this spectacular cake. This cake has now become a favorite of my 10 year old daughter and I can see, by her enthusiasm every time I make it, that she'll be baking it for me in no time.

How to Make Favorite Apple Cake

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Farenheit. Put rack in center of oven.
  2. In large mixing bowl, combine canola oil, orange juice, and sugar. Mix well with a hand mixer. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing thoroughly between additions. Add salt and baking soda and mix lightly. With hand mixer on med-low, gradually add flour one cup at a time. Set batter aside.
  3. Peel and core apples. Cut them into 1/4 inch slices. In separate bowl, combine apples, 1/2 cup granulated sugar, cinnamon and walnuts. Stir to combine.
  4. Grease and flour a tube pan. Pour 1/2 of batter into the pan. Spoon 1/2 of the apple-walnut mixture on top of batter in pan. Pour half of remaining batter over apple-walnut mix already in the pan. Spoon remaining apple-walnut mixture on top of batter in pan. Finish with pouring remaining batter over the apple-walnut mixture.
  5. Place cake pan in center of rack. Bake at 350 degrees Farenheit for 2 hours. Check top of cake after 1 hour 45 min. If top begins to burn, turn off oven and open door slightly and remove in 15 minutes. Cool cake, in pan, on cooling rack, for 2 hours. Run a knife around edge of cake pan to loosen. Turn pan to remove cake but turn cake back onto a plate. Dust with confectioner's sugar. Serve warm or at room temperature.
