Apple Cake Recipes


A family favorite for years. Yummy!


  • 4 cups apples (peeled and diced)
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup oil
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • Advertisement

  • 3 cups flour
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 cup walnuts, chopped


Dice and peel the apples. Mix with 2 cups sugar and let stand 1 hour, then add 2 eggs beaten in the 1 cup oil and 1 teaspoon vanilla. Add the 3 cups flour with the salt and soda. Mix. Add 1 cup of walnuts and mix well, but do not beat hard. Pour into a greased and floured 9x13 inch cake pan. Bake at 350 degrees F for about 45 minutes. Either sprinkle with powdered sugar while warm or cream cheese frosting.

We love the smell of it baking and can't wait to eat! We used to pick our apples and gather black walnuts when my children were little, this was one of our favorite cakes. It brings back such fond memories. Yummy!

This is one of my family's favorite recipes, and it's one of the simplest recipes I've seen (it only has THREE ingredients). I always have the ingredients on hand, and tastes so rich that nobody ever believes it's so simple.

This cake uses no oil or margarine which makes it healthier and plus it's very easy to make especially if you keep some chopped apples in the freezer.

This is a family favorite, so it's made quite often. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease, but don't flour a 10 or 12-cup bundt pan. Mix sugar, flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt in a large bowl until blended.

Combine flour, sugar, salt, baking soda, and cinnamon. Add apples, raisins, and nuts.Mix oil with eggs and vanilla. Blend into apple mixture. Spread into a greased 9 x 13 inch pan. Mixture will be very thick and heavy. Bake one hour at 350 degrees. Place on rack to cool with a tea towel over the top.

Cake #2
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup sugar
3 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1/3 cup orange juice

1 cup brown sugar
1 cup pared, chopped apples
1 cup chopped nuts

For Streusel, combine first 5 ingredients, then stir in butter.

For cake, combine flour, baking powder and baking soda. Beat butter and sugar with mixer until light and fluffy. Add the eggs and vanilla, mixing well.

Alternately add flour mixture and orange juice. Spoon half the batter into a greased tube pan. Sprinkle with HALF the struesel. Top with remaining batter. Swirl with knife.

Bake for 15 minutes at 350 degrees. Sprinkle with remaining half of streusel. Bake an additional 30-35 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto rack to finish cooling.

Dutch apple cake is batter layered with sliced apples and fall seasonings. It is also referred to as apple pie and is likely the basis for our classic All American dessert.
