Apple Cake


  • 2 cups sugar
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 cup shortening
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla (we use vanilla paste)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3 cups peeled and diced apples


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a bundt pan and set aside.
  2. Cream shortening, sugar, eggs and vanilla.
  3. In a large bowl mix dry ingredients.
  4. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and then slowly add milk and whisk until no large lumps remain.
  5. Using a spatula fold in diced apples.
  6. Spread in prepared pan and bake for 45-50 minutes. Cool for 2 hours.

1 stick of margarine
1 cup of brown sugar
4 tsp cinnamon
4 tbsp flour

Mix all ingredients together and then spread on cake after it has cooled.
Another option would be to bake it with the cake. This is the way our mother used to make it and both choices are delicious!

Then add nuts (optional) and serve!!! YUM!

This would be a wonderful dessert for Thanksgiving and served with an excellent cup of coffee. Happy Baking!

Soft, Dense, and delicious apple cake! Perfect for the holidays.
