Grandma's Fresh Apple cake

I know it's not apple season yet.  But this was too good to save.....

Several years ago, I gathered together my mother's recipes and scanned them into my computer,making her a recipe book of all her favorite recipes.  I kept all the original recipes for myself and gave her the compilation of recipes I had created.

The other day I was pleasantly surprised when I came across the collection of recipes.  I had to look through them again to see if there was anything I was wanting to bake, make, cook or create in my own kitchen.

I found several recipes of interest.  But this recipe is the one that popped out at me!  It was one of my Grandmother's favorite recipes written in her own handwriting. So I decided to give it a try.

This Fresh Apple Cake is written in my grandma's handwriting
(the title is in my mom's writing)

It was a big hit!

Fresh Apple Cake

1-1/2 cups oil
3 eggs
2 cups sugar
2 tsp vanilla
3 cups flour
1-1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
Beat these 7 ing together and then add:
1 cup chopped nuts
1 cup coconut
3 cups chopped apples

Bake in a tube pan  ( I used a regular cake pan) sprayed with Pam or other non stick spray. 

Bake 1-1/2 hours at 350.

1 stick of butter
1 c. brown sugar
1/4 c. milk
(I added a pinch of cinnamon)

Boil for 2-1/2 minutes.  Pour over hot cake.  Leave cake in pan until cold.  Place on serving dish.

We of course just ate the cake from  the cake dish.

Pour (and spread) icing over cake

  1. This cake looks amazing! I have a couple of recipes written in my Grammy's hand and I treasure them. What a cool gift to make a collection of those recipes in a book!
