After seeing all the Fall inspired recipes around, I thought apples! I pulled out a recipe I havent made in 30 years! I remember the person who gave it to me and have no idea what they're doing today, but I have that recipe! Friends were coming over tonight for dessert and coffee so off to the grocery store I ran to get some fresh Gala apples. Right now I'm really bonkers for Braeburn (did I spell that right?!?) apples, but can't seem to get my hands on them at the grocery store lately, so Gala would have to do because personally, the McIntosh and others don't have much of a flavor these days.
There are so many apples in this cake, plus the sauce you pour over top soaks into the cake it is super-moist...and heavy! Ok, on to the recipe, right?
FRESH APPLE NUT CAKE
2 tsp vanilla
3 cups chopped apples
1 tsp salt
3 cups plain flour
2 cups sugar
1 1/4 cups Wesson oil
1 tsp soda
1 cup chopped nuts (I used pecans)
Mix all ingredients together and bake at 350 degrees for one hour in ungreased 9 x 13 pan.
1/2 cup butter (one stick)
1 cup PET Milk (has to be Pet. Trust me, I've tried Carnation and others, has to be Pet!)
1 cup brown sugar
Bring to a boil and boil 3-4 minutes. Pour over WARM cake.
I try to time the icing part to when I take the cake out of the oven. With it fresh from the oven, the liquid soaks into the cake better.
Sorry, there are no pictures.
