Apple Cake

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup coconut oil {or oil or butter}
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • diced apples (mine were frozen)
  • caramel topping - optional
  • walnuts - optional

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Grease a 9×13 inch rectangular cake pan
  3. Beat oil and eggs until creamy
  4. Add sugar and vanilla and beat well
  5. Combine flour, cinnamon, salt and baking soda together in a bowl
  6. Slowly add flour mixture to the egg mixture
  7. and mix until thoroughly combined
  8. The batter will be very thick
  9. Fold in half of the diced apples
  10. Spread half the batter into the prepared pan
  11. Spread 1/4 of the leftover apples
  12. Spread the rest of the batter onto those apples
  13. Top with the last of the apples
  14. I added a few crushed walnuts on top
  15. I drizzled some caramel topping over the top
  16. Bake for 45 minutes or until cake is done in the center.
  17. Cool.



No caramel sauce on hand???
Caramel Glaze for the top:

  • 4 Tablespoons butter
  • 3 Tablespoons brown sugar
  • 3 Tablespoons white or raw sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 Tablespoons milk
  • 1-2 Tablespoons confectioner’s sugar, sifted
  1. Heat butter, sugars, vanilla and milk over medium heat
  2. whisk constantly
  3. When it reaches a boil, boil for one minute
  4. whisk constantly
  5. Remove from heat and continue stirring 
  6. Add one tablespoon confectioner’s sugar to thicken.
    Use more if it needs to thicken more.
*Note: If you don’t have a whisk, then you should sift the confectioner’s sugar first to avoid lumps.

"BON APPETIT!"

A deep round dish will NOT work for this.... the apples make the center too gummy. Ensure you use the right pan! But YUMMMMMMMM
