In by noon or your money back!

I made this cake this week for our Sunday School Class. I think the baking time is wrong.  I only cooked it for about 55 minutes. I did not frost it because the cake is so moist, it did not need the frosting in my opinion. This was  a big hit in class and at home.


Fresh Apple Cake

Enjoy this recipe from Gooseberry Patch’s:  Our Favorite Harvest Recipes

5 baking apples, cored, peeled and sliced
2 t. cinnamon
2-1/2 c. plus 5 T. sugar, divided
3 c. all-purpose flour
1/2 t. salt
4 eggs, beaten
1 c. oil
2 t. vanilla extract
1/3 c. orange juice
1-1/2 t. baking powder
1-1/2 t. baking soda

Toss apples with cinnamon and 5 tablespoons sugar; set aside. Mix remaining ingredients together; blend well. Pour 1/3 of the batter into a greased and floured 10″ tube pan; layer with half of the apples. Repeat layers and pour remaining batter on top. Bake at 350 degrees for 1-1/2 to 1-3/4 hours, or until a toothpick inserted in the center removes clean. Cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes; invert tube pan and remove to cool completely. Frost with Brown Sugar Icing. Serves 12 to 15.

Brown Sugar Icing:

1/2 c. shortening
1 c. brown sugar, packed
1/4 c. milk
2 c. powdered sugar
Combine all ingredients and blend until smooth.

  1. Do you think this could be incorporated into a regular cake pan or is it the type of thing that HAS to use the tube pan?

  2. I am not sure.. It makes quite a bit of batter. The cake turns out almost sticky. Sorry.

  3. Hi there!

    We’re glad your recipe turned out so moist and that it was such a big hit. When we saw your note about the baking time, we wanted to check our original recipe to make sure we’d printed it correctly.

    The recipe printed matches the one that was originally sent to us. As you know, there are so many variables that can affect baking time…we’re glad you figured out the right time for your kitchen.

    Whether your oven is gas or electric, oven temperatures often vary, and baking time and/or even temperatures may need slight adjustments. It’s always good to keep an eye on it.

    Here’s a link to the book where your readers can find this tasty cake:

    Thanks again!
