Apple Pound Cake

This cake is delicious and so hearty you could have a slice for breakfast with a glass of milk! My family loves it!


  • 3 cups flour (I do half all purpose/half whole wheat for extra nutrition)
  • Advertisement

  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup orange, pineapple or apple juice
  • 1 cup oil ( I use half olive oil - healthier)
  • 1 2/3 cups white sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 cups chopped apples
  • 1 cup chopped nuts (opt)
  • 1/2 cup raisins


Combine flour, soda, salt and spices and set aside. In a large bowl beat together oil, sugar, eggs and vanilla until thoroughly combined. Gradually beat in flour mixture until smooth. Fold in apples, nuts, raisins. Turn into a greased and floured tube pan. Bake at 325 degrees F. for 1 hour and 15 minutes.

You can use all white flour, and make a confectioner sugar glaze to make it more desserty :) Or throw some oat or wheat bran in for extra fiber. You could also try it with chopped dates. Either way you make it, I am sure this will become a family staple.


Enjoy my thrifty friends!
