Hi,

Fall is in the air around here and we went apple picking over the weekend. I'm looking for a scratch recipe for an Apple Cake, or Apple Spice Cake.

Would anyone be willing to share their favorite recipe please?

P.S.
I have some of Jodief's caramal filling left and I'd love to incorporate that into the cake somehow icon_smile.gif

Thanks you guys, have a great day!

Here are 2 I love.

Fresh Apple Butter Cake-
1 c Butter
2 c Sugar
3 Eggs
3 c Flour
1 1/2 ts Baking soda
1/2 ts Salt
2 ts Cinnamon
1/2 ts Nutmeg
2 ts Vanilla
3 c MacIntosh apples; diced (or other cooking apples. Peeled is better also)
2 c Walnuts; chopped
-SHERRY GLAZE-
1 c Sugar
1/2 c Sherry
1/4 cup butter

-CIDER GLAZE-
1/2 c. sugar
1/2 c. cider
1/2 cup butter


Cream butter and sugar well; add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition; sift flour, soda, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg together, gradually add to butter mixture; stir in vanilla; fold in apples and walnuts; pour into a greased 10-inch tube pan and bake in a preheated, 325~ oven for approximately 1 1/2 hours; cool; drizzle sherry (or other)glaze over cake and serve.
Sherry Glaze. Combine sugar and sherry and butter in a heavy saucepan; cook, stirring constantly, until syrupy.
Cider Glaze. Cook all till bubbly and syrupy.

Or, don't glaze, use an icing of choice, like cider buttercream or cider cream cheese icing.


**Fresh Apple Chiffon Cake
1 c Egg whites; from 7 large egg
2 tb Granulated sugar
1 1/4 c Packed brown sugar
1/2 c Apple juice
1/3 c Vegetable oil
Yolks from 2 large eggs
3 ts Vanilla extract
2 c All-purpose flour
1 tb Baking powder
2 ts Ground cinnamon
1/2 ts Salt
1/2 ts Ground nutmeg
1/8 ts Ground cloves
1 ts ground ginger
3 md Mcintosh apples-about 1 pound-peeled and coarsely shredded

Heat oven to 325 F. Have a 9- to 10-inch tube pan ready. If pan has a removable bottom, do nothing to it. If not, lightly grease and line bottom with waxed paper. Lightly grease paper.
Beat egg whites in a large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until frothy.
Gradually increase mixer speed to high, adding granulated sugar 1 tablespoon at a time. Beat until whites greatly increase in volume and are thick and glossy, and stiff peaks form when beaters are lifted. In another large bowl, with electric mixer on high (no need to wash beaters), beat brown sugar, apple juice, oil, egg yolks and vanilla extract until
well blended.
Gradually beat in flour, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, nutmeg and cloves/ginger.
Stir in shredded apples.
Stir about 1/3 the whites into the apple mixture to lighten.
Pour apple mixture into remaining whites and gently
stir (fold) with a rubber spatula until no white streaks remain.
Scrape into tube pan and smooth top. Bake 1 hour 15 minutes or until pick inserted near center of cake comes out clean. Invert tube pan on a wire rack or hang on the neck of a glass bottle. Let cool completely.

Glaze as desired or frost with a buttercream (cider flavors are great, as are rum, sherry, orange, cinnamon and burnt sugar.)

HTH!

I can get you one tomorrow. Its from an old recipe passed on to my mom. Everyone loves it when I make it. My mom won't even make it she says I do a better job. But its definitely a New England recipe and in our family a tradition.

Okay here it is sorry it took so long I'm swamped at work.

2 1/4 c. Sugar
3 eggs
3/4 c. Oil
1 tsp. Baking Soda
1 tsp. Cinnamon (I always add more YUMMY)
1 tsp. Vanilla ( I add more too)
2 c. Peales sliced apples

Mix dry ingredients in one bowl, liquids in another then put the two together. BE CAREFUL if you choose to eat some its ADDICTING. (Once ate all the dough) Then slowly mix in the apples if they break its okay it won't hurt them. Bake at 350 for 45-50 min. We always made it in a bundt pan.

Enjoy!!!
