Apple Cake with Fresh Apples at FreshBitesDaily.com Follow Me on Pinterest Aunt Minnie is one of the rare cooks who has passed her art down to the next generations of would-be cooks. She is known for this fragrant fall treat, a delectable apple cake. Her recipe can be found in New Recipes from Moosewood. I have adapted it just a bit and do can you. Get creative and have fun.

This recipe calls for half whole wheat flour in a genre of cooking that typically uses only white flour. 100% whole grain is the ideal, but in this case, the cake is too dry.

Apple Cake Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups coconut oil

  • 2 cups brown sugar (e.g. sucanat)
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 cup white flour
  • 1 1/2 cup whole wheat flour (or spelt)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • grated rind of one lemon
  • 3 tablespoon milk
  • 3 cups chopped apples
  • 1 cup chopped nuts, preferably walnuts
  • a tad of butter
  • 3 tablespoon sesame seeds

  1. Butter a tube pan or a 9×13 pan.

  2. Sprinkle sesame seeds on the sides and bottom of the pan.
  3. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  4. Cream the oil and sugar together and add the lemon rind.
  5. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well.
  6. Sift together all the dry ingredients.
  7. Add the apples and nuts to the dry ingredients. Toss around to coat both the fruit and the nuts.
  8. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients alternately with the milk and vanilla. Mix well.
  9. Pour into the prepared pan and bake for 30 to 45 minutes depending on the pan you have chosen. Check with the point of a sharp knife or a tooth pick. They should be free of batter if the cake is done.

  10. Remove cake from oven and slide a butter knife around the edges to loosen the cake.
  11. Allow to cool for 30 minutes and remove to a cake plate. If desired, sprinkle with confectioners sugar.

Slices of this cake freeze well to be toted in lunch bags. It makes an excellent muffin as well.
