My heart is getting deep into holiday mode here, so I am really trying to eke out some Autumn while I can. I made this Apple Cake a couple of weeks ago and what with all the sewing and giveaway winning, I haven't had a chance to give this cake her due.
I actually froze half and then thawed it (sooner than I expected I would ... and not just for myself.) It was still delicious.
3 C flour 1 C chopped pecans
2 C sugar 1 T vanilla extract
1 t salt 3/4 C oil
2 T cinnamon 3 eggs, beaten
1 T baking soda Garnish: powdered sugar
3 apples, peeled, cored and diced
Mix flour, sugar, salt, cinnamon and baking soda in a large bowl. In a separate bowl, mix apples with pecans and combine with four mixture. In a small bowl, mix vanilla, oil and eggs together; add to flour mixture. Place in a lightly greased and floured Bundt pan. Bake at 350 degrees for one hour or until tested done. Let cool for 10 minutes and invert onto a serving plate. After it's cool, sprinkle with powdered sugar.
Bake, eat, enjoy.
Enjoy this season.
