Apples

EDITED 10 Nov. 2017:  I have been honored to have been asked to share my recipe for my applesauce cake by Tracy over at It’s A T-Sweets Day.  The recipe for the cake is added to the bottom of this blog post.  Enjoy!!

We have an apple tree and so does a friend of mine.  She doesn’t use her apples so she brings them over to me.  Lately, I have found myself with a boat load of apples and we can’t eat them fast enough.  So… I made apple sauce

Spiced Applesauce Cake

1/3 C butter; softened

1 C brown sugar

1 egg

1 C thick applesauce

1 ½ C flour

1 t baking powder

1 t baking soda

1 t ground cinnamon

½ t ground allspice

½ t ground nutmeg

Dash salt

**Option: ½ C raisins, ¾ C chopped nuts

 

Cream butter and sugar until smooth. Add egg and beat well. Stir in applesauce.

 

Sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, spices and salt. Add to butter mixture and mix well.

 

**Add raisins and chopped nuts now if desired**

 

Turn batter into a greased and floured bundt pan (I use 2 round cake pans).

 

Bake at 350° until cake is done and pick inserted in center comes out clean. About 35-40 minutes.

 

Let cake rest in pan for a few minutes and then turn out onto rack.

  1. We have no apples….😥. You can also slice them and freeze in 3 cup batches for apple pie, crisp or fried apples which a nice side dish. Or go all out and can some apple sauce…it only requires a hot water bath canner. Enjoy!

  2. Oh yum! That cake looks delicious!!! It would be a perfect one for our Fantastic Bake Along next month for Thanksgiving if you are interested:). Will you be joining us this month for the Chili/Chocolate Bread?

  3. Connie, next week is the Bake Along. I was thinking of highlighting your apple cake, but asking everyone to bake a different apple recipe. Could you add the recipe to this post so others could make it if they would like?❤️❤️

  4. That didn’t come out sounding right…. I mean I want to celebrate the apple as we are in fall and near thanksgiving. I thought I would say how I was inspired by your wonderful cake and thought we all might have an apple family favorite recipe that we could all share. I hope that explains it better:)❤️❤️
