Easy Apple Cake

IMG_6262

Fruit.

IMG_6279

I know. You must be wondering what’s wrong with me.

Me too, but don’t worry. Wait til you see how this recipe ends up.

I got it from a friend who got it from his wife who got it from someone at church who got it from …… someone who likes apples I guess.

Anyway, it sounded pretty yummy and easy. Easy being the key word here because I spent most of the weekend trying to get everything together that I’m going to need for the upcoming Cupcake Camp and Cake Pops Book Tour. Yeah, they’re both right around the corner. Like next weekend around the corner. Hope you guys come by and say hi!

Please forgive me for the following if you do.

IMG_6287

The main characters are chopped apples, walnuts and dates. Innocent enough. Good for you even.

IMG_6306

After you mix up the cake batter, stir in the chopped walnuts. (I like mine on the small side.)

IMG_6317

Chopped dates tossed in flour.

IMG_6318

And diced apples. Stir them all together and then bake in a 13 X 9 pan for about 40-45 minutes at 350.

IMG_6363

Take it out of the oven and when cool, poke holes in the cake so the topping you are about to add can seep inside and keep it cozy.

P.S. Remember how the cake looks here. I should have tasted it at this stage. I’m sure it was already yummy.

But then I added the topping.

IMG_6328

Butter, brown sugar and milk… oh dear.

IMG_6337

Heat it on the stove until it starts to bubble.

IMG_6370

Remove and pour some over the cooled cake.

IMG_6371

Here we go.

IMG_6372

Hey … I said some…………

IMG_6375

Not a waterfall. Yikes. I don’t know what happened.

Yes I do. I was trying so hard to get a good pouring shot… taking pictures and balancing and pouring at the same time, I didn’t notice that I bathed the cake in brown sugar.

IMG_6381

Bathed … as in drenched.

IMG_6403

But maybe that’s okay with you.

It is with me. I just need to make a dentist appointment right away : )

Seriously though, pull back on the pouring. You shouldn’t need all the topping and maybe not any. I guess I’ll have to make it again to know for sure.

Easy Apple Cake

3 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 cups sugar
1 1/2 cups oil
3 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
3 cups diced apples
1 cup chopped dates rolled in flour
1 cup chopped walnuts

Topping
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup butter
1/4 cup milk

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a medium bowl, sift together flour, baking soda and cinnamon with a wire whisk and set aside.
  • Combine sugar and oil using a mixer until blended.
  • Add eggs and vanilla, mixing until combined.
  • Add flour mixture and mix well.
  • Stir in nuts, dates and apples. The batter will be very thick.
  • Pour into a greased and floured 9 X 13 pan and bake for 40-45 minutes or until done.
  • Cool cake and using a skewer, poke holes in cake.
  • Cook topping ingredients on stove until mixture bubbles.
  • Pour topping over cake letting some (ha… more if you like) seep into the cake.

Enjoy!

This looks so good!!! I just got some apples from my Mother-in-law’s trees, so I plan to make this cake — only I don’t really care for dates – so I’ll substitute raisins! Thanks for the wonderful blog!!! Next week I’m going to make the jack-o-lantern cake pops for my Granddaughter’s day care. I’ve had trouble with the edible ink markers in the past, not really showing up on the candy melt surface. I found some black candy melts, tho, so if the marker doesn’t work, I’ll just pipe the faces on with the black candy melts!!!

I made the cake this morning. It was SO good. I skipped the dates and nuts as well as the topping. I like it just as it is and a little warm. There may not be any left for me to share tomorrow.

Yummy! Tested this out last night–1/2 recipe (1/4 recipe for topping). It was best fresh out of the oven with the warm sauce.

Beautiful. I had to make it. So, I did. It was super yummy. I halved the topping recipe and it was just perfect. Not too sweet. Just needed a cup of coffee to go along with it. And, you can bet I will in the AM. Perfection. :) Thanks. Can’t wait to see you in Atlanta!

I LOVE everything you make!

This looks amazing! I would love to sit down with a pan of it. lol But unfortunately, I’m not going to make it how you have it written. I’m going to try to healthify the recipe today and I don’t want to know what I’m missing. As much as I would love it just as it is, my diet can’t afford a piece of almost 800 calorie dessert. :(

I made this tonight and OH EM GEE.

I used chopped pecans instead of the dates. I made the topping, and it’s the most delectable thing I’ve tasted in a long time. It absolutely makes the cake!

This recipe came on the heels of our annual apple picking trip. The kids had a blast making this with me and we all had multiple helpings for snack. What an AMAZING recipe once again. Love Bakerella!!! We also make your Banana Yumberry muffins all the time.

I made the cake last night! Let’s just say it was a huge hit. By the time I went to bed and hour and a half later the neighbors ate some, my kids ate some, I ate some, my husband packed some (ok a lot) for work. IT WAS AMAZING!! This is definately going to be on the Thanksgiving menu.

Thanks for sharing!

Wendy in California said...

Dog-gone-you, Bakerella, those great photos made my mouth water. So I dug out my baking gear and got busy. I’m an experimenter by nature, so I played with the recipe just a little. My changes: 1) substituted craisins for the dates…I soaked them in apple juice for a couple hours, drained them well, then dusted with flour. 2) I washed the apples very well and didn’t peel them – I like the added texture. 3) I used 1 1/4 cup nuts and 1 cup Heath toffee bits – added texture and a lovely caramel-y flavor). 4) The batter was enough for two cakes……one I made in a bundt pan (I love the finished shape…..the slices are pretty) and the other I used a 9X5 loaf pan. 5) I drizzled the top of the bundt loaf with a new product from Duncan Heinz “Amazing Glaze”…..and, while it was hot from the oven, I topped the loaf liberally with cinnamon sugar. The results were AbFAB…..all scarfed up by family and friends…and requests for the recipe….for which I credited you (and me a little, too). All in all – I definitely will bake this again! Who knows what I’ll do in my kitchen/lab next time, ha, ha. Thanks for the continued inspiration!

Sara Shalls said...

I made this and used half whole wheat flour and half regular, I skipped the brown sugar and butter part all together and it was still great. Good for breakfast too. Next time I’ll try subbing half the oil for apple sauce…hopefully it will add to the apple flavor!

Mmmh, made the cake today, it tastes YUMMY!! Very strange texture, such a firm dough, reminds me of cookie dough, but its oh-so-delicious! Readers, if you didn’t try it yet, do bake it tomorrow. Its well worth a try!

Cindy said...

Made this for a work potluck today, I am told it is FANTASTIC………….I’m not eating it because I can’t have it or I would know for sure. Usually cake just sits there, nobody tries it at all. I left a note on it that said it was swimming in a caramel sauce. 1 hour later around 9am I went into that area to see it had almost been abolished. Thanks for this great recipe.

sarah commerford said...

ROCK IT!

Even more than the awesome recipe, I LOVE your writing style and pix – I especially appreciate the comment about pouring too much topping on as a result of trying to get a good shot – it’s a serious challenge to try to do it all!!

Really enjoyed it!

Elena Brefo said...

I just baked this cake thank you. I didn’t realise the apples you used were peeled as it doesn’t say this in the recipe but it seems fine still. It falls apart really easily and I don’t know if that’s how its meant to be but thank you for sharing.

Jennifer said...

My great-grandmother had an apple cake recipe (passed down, of course, to the rest of us) that is very similar, only without the nuts and dates! Any suggestions on how to (or whether it’s possible) to make this kind of cake in two 8-inch pans (like to make a layer cake?)?

Anonymous said...

you are my hero! i baked this cake and it was super delicious and easy. i did follow your suggestion of holding back from the syrup however i could not resist so i did add the syrup but only enough to make the cake super moist :D once again i absolutely adore your recipes and you inspire me so much thank you.

Alex said...

Tried my hand at this recipe–and it turned out great! I knew from the start that I couldn’t justify the topping, so I decided to do half brown sugar and half white sugar in the main part of the cake, since I didn’t want to lose out on the brown sugar goodness.
Got rave reviews from all my family members. For the less adventurous ones I decided to reveal that dates were in the ingredient list after they’d already licked their plates. Mwahaha~

Dear dear Bakerella … or Angie as I found out when I ordered your book !! … I just picked up my copy of CakePops … you should be soooo proud !!! It is a beautiful book but also so well thought out & beautifully layed out … coil bindings for those of us who really want to use cookbooks … and at such a great price point. Amazing !!! I love it, my niece saw it and is headed out to get a copy too. Beautiful !!!
Thanks from Nova Scotia !!

I made this Thursday, and we’re still loving it today! I used pecans (because I already had some) and Macintosh apples. It’s really a wonderful fall cake. I thought it would be too sweet, with all the sugar in the cake AND in the glaze. But it’s just perfect! Thanks for the recipe!

Baked this dessert for dinner at my mother-in-laws last night. I substituted pears for the apples as my hubby is allergic to apples. Used pecans instead of walnuts because I already had them in the pantry. Added some salt to off-set all the sugar and fruit. It was wonderful! A great taste of fall on one of our first cool fall evenings here in Kansas. I will be making this one again soon.

Stacey A. said...

Delicious and so easy to make! I brought this cake into work and one of my co-workers eyes lit up when she took a bite, with her mouth full she said, “OMG, this is goood cake!”

I would suggest cutting the glaze recipe in half, I only used a very small amount of what I made. But, after trying a piece of cake without the glaze I definitely wouldn’t leave it out because it helps add moisture to the thick consistency of the baked cake.

I’m so happy Thanksgiving (Canadian) is this weekend…it gives me another excuse to use this recipe!

mmmmm I made this and it was DELICIOUS!
Just a few things:
the batter was very, very thick, but it does say that it should be so i wasn’t worried
this made a looot of batter. I filled a 8×8 and a loaf pan and they were both almost overflowing by the end of baking
i hade to add about 5 minutes to the cook time, making it about 50 minutes.
Otherwise, a superb recipe!

There are so many things I love about your blog…in particular, that you have your step-by-step commentary with pics, and then the recipe in concise form for easy copy-and-paste action. One or the other won’t do; commentary + photos + recipe = awesome. Thank you.

I also enjoy your sense of humor and the incredible photos you take of your creations.

I just took my first attempt at your apple cake out of the oven; it’s for a gift tomorrow. I will do the sauce/topping in the morning, so it’s warm…but having tasted the cake without the topping, I can only say

O.M.G.

You’re a genius and I love you already.

Great recipe!

I didn’t have dates so I omitted those! I also doubled the cinnamon and added nutmeg to make it a little more flavorful. The end product was great! Lots of recipe requests.

I had extra batter because I was using a smaller cake pan,so I made muffins (and didn’t pour the sugar mixture on top of them). They turned out great- perfect for breakfast!

I just made it and it is soooo yummy. My husband is from Morocco and Loves dates, so this is up his alley. Going to have some for dessert tonight. Hopefully he loves it too.

Made this last night for the second time … the first time I was date-less so I used raisins and hazelnuts but it wasn’t as good as this version with dates and cashews (hubby has an aversion to walnuts).

Hope you don’t mind me blogging about it!

I just made this cake again last night and 4 of us ate half of it in once sitting. This is the most amazingly easy, scrumptious cake ever.

Bakerella – The apple cake looks delicious. I have an apple tree in my backyard and we just harvested a big bag of apples. I had a question regarding the recipe. did you use cinnamon or cinnamon sugar for this recipe? Is there a difference if you use either one? Thanks in advance

I made this for the first time today (I’ve been wanting an excuse to make it since you first posted it.)
Soooooo good! :-9 At least five people at the event sought me out to comment and ask for the recipe!
I’m trying to figure out what engagements and family gatherings over Christmas I can take it to now! ;-) Thanks so much for sharing!

My apple cake is in the oven right now! I can’t wait to drench it and have a piece!! (We had a spatula fatality due to the thickness of the batter… A moment of silence, please, for the kitchen utensil that gave it’s life for my dessert)
