Foolproof Apple Cake

cassie thornburg


I love cooking seasonally, and when October rolls around I find myself wanting to bake this recipe. It is TRULY foolproof! I recently decided to try another "apple cake" recipe and was very disappointed - there weren't enough apples - the cake was dry and bland. But this one never fails and I want to share it with you - I hope you decide to try it.

How to Make Foolproof Apple Cake


  • 1Preheat the oven to 350
  • 2Combine the apples and sugar in a bowl; let stand 10 full minutes.

  • 4Combine the oil, vanilla and egg white - beat until slightly frothy. Add to the flour mixture and mix well.
  • 5This will be VERY dry. (There will be some moisture from the apple mixture)
  • 6Add the apples and any juice that has collected at the bottom of the bowl. (it's ok to add a tsp or so of water to the mixture if it doesn't come together).
