Bear N Mom Recipes - Apple Cake & Caramel Drizzle Icing
Apple Cake made with real apple bits
This recipe originally came from my friend's aunt Sal. My mother-in-law had a version of this recipe and would make it before she put up her apples in the Fall for winter baking and eating.
I continued to make this recipe before putting up sweetened apple slices and applesauce so that we had them well into the winter months. BUT!!! There is no law that says you can't go to the supermarket and buy enough apples to make this Epicurean delight at any time of the year. In today's world, we are not held captive to when the apples grow in our area.
This cake is too rich to eat more than one square. It's what every good dessert should be: gooey and sweet. If you have a sweet tooth and love apples this is just the cake for you.
- 4 cups chopped apples
- 2 cups sugar
- 1/2 cup vegetable oil
- 2 eggs
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 2 cups flour
- 2 teaspoons baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon
- 1 cup chopped walnuts
Mix apples, sugar, oil eggs and vanilla. Add rest of ingredients and mix well.
Pour into a 9 x 12 ungreased pan and bake in a preheated oven for 60 minutes at 350°.
When cake is done, remove from oven. Cake can be served plain, sprinkled with powdered sugar or poke holes in top and then pour caramel icing over cake.
Caramel Drizzle Icing
This drizzle icing has a rich caramel taste, goes on gooey and makes any cake into a can't resist sweetness.
This recipe is so simple and was originally used on the Apple Cake recipe but can be drizzled over any bundt cake that cries out for that caramel taste such as spice cakes.
- 1 stick of butter or margarine
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 cup milk.
Mix all ingredients in a saucepan and cook for 2-1/2 minutes.
