This is a high, moist cake, It is the best one I have ever tasted, quite frankly. I have no idea what ingredient makes it a "Jewish Coffee Cake".



Grease and flour a 10 inch bundt pan. Combine apple slices with with the 5 tablespoons of sugar and the cinnamon. Set aside.


Combine flour, baking powder, and salt in a bowl and set aside.

Beat eggs with remaining granulated sugar and brown sugar. Add vegetable oil and applesauce (if using), orange juice, and vanilla. Beat well. Gradually blend in flour mixture and mix until well blended (about one minute). Mix in apples.

Bake at 350 degrees F till golden brown and a knife inserted in center comes out clean. Cool at least 10 minutes and invert on wire rack. Let cool completely.

Note: You could put a streusel mix in the bottom of the pan before putting in the batter, or, if you don't do that, you can sift powdered sugar over the top after inverting it. Also, this makes too much batter, because it does go all the way to the top; you could make a mini cake with the rest of the batter.

A moist and delicious apple cake. Easy to make and is a tasty treat. Goes great with coffee or tea.


  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup oil
  • Advertisement

  • 4 eggs
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
  • 3 cups flour
  • 4 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. nutmeg
  • 3 Tbsp. sugar
  • (4) Medium apples, peeled/sliced thin
  • Sugar/Cinnamon Mix, optional *

*Combine 1/3 cup sugar + 1 tsp. cinnamon.


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Using a vegetable spray thoroughly coat inside of a tube pan. If using, sprinkle sugar/cinnamon mixture in bottom and sides of pan; save some for the top of cake.

Combine cinnamon, nutmeg and sugar. Add apples and mix gently. Set aside.

Combine sugar and oil together. Beat in eggs and mix thoroughly. Stir in orange juice and vanilla. Blend well.

Add combined flour, baking powder and salt and stir in until completely mixed. Batter will be thick and heavy.

Pour a layer of batter then a layer of apples into the pan. Repeat ending with apples. If using, sprinkle top with remainder of the cinnamon/sugar mixture. Bake for one hour and 10 minutes.


Suggestions: Add 2 tsp. of lemon juice to the apples before mixing in spices.

Peaches can be used instead of apples.

I haven't tried this but was told to substitute half of the oil using unsweetened apple sauce.

Does anyone have an old Jewish apple cake recipe made with bisquick? About 12 years ago, I got a recipe for Jewish Apple Cake off of the Bisquick box. It was the best and easiest that I've ever made. I've searched the net, with no luck. Even emailed Betty Crocker, who said they no longer have that recipe. Thanks so much!
