Fall is here!!! Let's make an Apple Cake

I just love apple cake with my favorite coffee or hot tea, or just by itself. I always want to make an apple cake when Fall rolls in and you will too when you try this recipe. This is What's Cookin on Beaty's Creek.


3 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar-packed
2 t cinnamon
1 t sea salt
1 t baking soda
1 1/2 cups vegetable oil
3 eggs-I use free range
2 t vanilla
4 cups apples, 4-5 apples-peeled and chopped into 1/2 inch pieces-I used Granny Smith this time but I also use Golden Delicious and Gala apples
1/2-1 cup water

Sift all of your dry ingredients. Now mix your wet ingredients together and add a little at a time. Mix all of the wet into the dry completely before adding more. I added about 3/4 cup of water to batter. It is really a thick batter.
Pour into a greased tube pan ad bake at 350' for 55-60 minutes. A long toothpick needs to come out clean when done. I start checking on mine at about 50 minutes of baking time. I hate it when I burn something so good.
