Aunt Marge's Apple Cake

My Great Aunt Marge made one heck of an apple cake.  You all know I'm not a food blogger, but I'm making an exception for this exceptional recipe!

Here's what you'll need:

3 eggs
1 ¾ c. sugar
¾ c. oil
2 c. flour
1 t. cinnamon
1 t. baking soda
½ t. salt
1/2 c. nuts, optional (I don't add nuts)
6 (or 5 large) Granny Smith apples, peeled and chopped to about 1/2 inch
The apples should be about this big.  They really don't have to be uniform.

Grease and flour 9 x 13 pan

Beat eggs and sugar in a large bowl for 5 minutes.  Yes, 5 minutes.  I'm not about to argue with Aunt Marge, are you???

Add oil and beat until mixed.

Fold in dry ingredients.  Add the apples and nuts (it seems like a LOT of apples but don't freak out, it's supposed to be lumpy)
See?  Pretty lumpy.

Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes (check with a toothpick).

And you're done!  Oh my gosh this thing is so good.  Let me know if you make it!

  3. Welcome to the food blogging community - even if it's only for one recipe ;). I can't ignore such a great intro, so I'll happily be giving this wonderful recipe a try. Thanks for sharing it.


  4. We make a cake very similar to yours, and you are right, it is fabulous! When it comes out of the oven we pour a hot buttermilk syrup and let that soak in. . .so good.

  5. I'll try this today. I bet beating the eggs so long gives the cake a crunchy crust.

  6. This looks so delish!! I'm a new follower and just love your posts.

  7. Jamie, I made this over the weekend and it is delicious! I substituted 3/4 c of splenda for some of the sugar. The top is a bit crunchy and shiny. Best of all this is a yummy way to get more fruit into our diet!

  8. I was going to pick up more apple tomorrow and this is just one more reason! I will be making this as a treat for my family when they come in from the outdoors this week.
