When I first became an English teacher in Pascagoula, MS, I had a girl named Doris in my class. This was a long time ago . . . 1964, and I still remember her. She found out that I liked sweets and that I liked to bake. One day she brought me a piece of the most delicious apple cake I had ever eaten, along with the recipe. I still have it . . . the recipe, that is, not the cake. Hope you enjoy this yummy, moist cake as much as I have through the years!

How to Make Fresh Apple Cake


  1. Mix together eggs, sugar, oil, and vanilla.
  2. Sift the dry ingredients and add to the first mixture.
  3. Add grated apples and chopped nuts.
  4. Grease and flour either a tube pan or a Bundt pan. When I received this recipe, there was no such thing as baking spray with flour, but I imagine it would do fine in preparing the pan. Pour in batter and bake at 375 for about an hour. No icing of any sort needed!
