Best Apple Cake Recipe

Happy Tuesday! 

Today I'm sharing my favorite Apple Cake Recipe. 
 I've tried a few different apple cake recipes over the last few Autumn seasons, but this one is my absolute favorite. 


4 cups chopped Apples (I use Honey Crisp)
2 cups all purpose flower 
1 1/2 cups Sugar *  
2 teaspoons baking soda
4 teaspoons ground cinnamon (you can add as much as you want really)
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup vegetable oil 
2 eggs, beaten
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
You can add a 1 cup chopped walnuts for a crunch but I prefer it without. 


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9x13 inch pan. In a medium bowl, stir together the sugar and apples, set aside. Sift together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt.

2. In a large bowl, stir together the oil, eggs and vanilla. Add the apples and sugar, mix well. Stir in the dry ingredients (then the nuts if you decided to add them). Pour into the prepared pan and spread evenly.

3. Bake in the preheated oven for 40 - 45 minutes, or until cake springs back to the touch. 

*I've substituted Sugar with Agave Nectar in the past

It even tastes better the next day.
