I failed at taking photos of this. In fact all I have is one of my plate where I bragged to Dan that I made Apple Cake. Whoops. But thats what you are gonna get. While my friend Connie was visiting we made an Apple Cake which basically is Apple Bread but Cake just sounds so much better doesnt it? The recipe was handed down to Connie from her family and I STOLE IT! The fact that it is fall and she was visiting seemed like the perfect opportunity to make some...oh and I had someone to prep the apples for me! ha ha (Thanks Connie). Im going to share because I think it is DELICIOUS and hope you will try it. I get zero credit for this recipe...I just tried it and LOVE it!
Patton's County Gardens APPLE CAKE by Essie Patten
Bake at 350' for 50-60 min
4-cups diced Apples 2-cups White Sugar 2-Eggs 2-tsp Vanilla 1/2 cup- wesson oil or canola oil 2-cups Flour 1-tsp Salt 2-tsp cinnamon 2-tsp Baking Soda
Peel and cut apples into small pieces (Connie did this by hand...however for me I would cheat and use a peeler and an apple corer! oops) Place in large bowl. Add Sugar and stir. In separate bowl slightly beat eggs. Add Oil and Vanilla. Stir into the Apple/sugar mixture. Add remaining dry ingredients. Place in ungreased loaf pan. Bake. Let cool completely before cutting.
First I actually baked mine about an 1 hour and 20 min. I kept an eye on it but it was still a little too wet in the middle. Use a toothpick to check it and remember some of the "wet" you may see could be the apples. You want the top to be nice and brown and a mostly clean toothpick.
Second I like to eat my baked goods promptly since they are still warm and delicious. You can choose to do this but be warned it may be a little messy to cut. It still tastes good but you may not get perfectly cut pieces of bread. I didn't care. I used a fork! ha! But just a heads up
Hope you try it and LOVE it. Thanks to Pattons, Essie and Connie for sharing this recipe!
