A Simple Apple Cake
A Simple Apple Cake Eileen Goltz | Pareve
1 hour, 30 minutes 30 minutes
1 hour
1 (9x13-inch) cake

I like to use a combination of apple varieties in this cake, particularly Golden Delicious, Criterion, and McIntosh.

  • 4 cups peeled and diced apples (I like to use 4½ to 5 cups)
  • 2 cups sugar
  • ½ cup oil
  • 1 cup chopped nuts (pecans or walnuts)
  • 1 cup golden raisins
  • 2 eggs, well beaten
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 cups flour (general purpose, not self-rising)
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon salt

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. In a bowl, combine the apples and sugar and mix thoroughly. Add the oil, nuts, raisins, eggs and vanilla.
  3. Mix dry ingredients together and then add them to the apple mixture.
  4. Bake in a greased 13x9-inch pan for 1 hour but check at 45 minutes - depending on the type of apples you use it may be done sooner.
