In the Kitchen with Elaine: Fresh Apple Cake

By   /   October 13, 2012  /   Comments


Fall is apple time. Nothing smells better in the fall than apples and spice. I have fond memories of apple picking times in the Georgia mountains in the fall. Hot apple cider with a cinnamon stick in it, so warming. There are so many kinds of apples: reds, golds, greens, tart, sweet, crisp and soft to bite. Some are better for cooking, and some better for eating. Carmel and candy apples at the fair are so good!! Apples are healthy….you know what they say….an apple a day keeps the doctor away. Explore all the different kinds of apples. Try Figi, pink lady, and ambrosia for eating. These are crisp, sweet and a little tart. Delicious!! Apple Cake is a great fall treat. Try this recipe.

Fresh Apple Cake

½ cup butter, softened

2 cups sugar

2 eggs

2 cups all purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

½ teaspoon salt

½ teaspoon nutmeg

½ teaspoon cinnamon

½ cup walnuts, chopped

4 medium to large apples (peeled, cored, and chopped)

Preheat oven to 350°. Generously grease a tube pan. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy; add eggs and mix. In another bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, nutmeg and cinnamon. Gradually add to egg mixture until thoroughly combined. Stir in chopped apples and nuts. Mixture will be very thick.

Scrape batter into tube pan. Bake for 45 to 50 minutes. Cool 15 minutes, then invert cake onto a serving plate. Dust with powdered sugar or make a glaze to drizzle over cake.

I don’t think a piece of apple cake will keep the doctor away; it just makes you feel better!! It’s yummy!!

Hope you enjoy!!

May God Bless You!!
