Recipe: Big Mama’s Apple Cake


Description

Named for “Apple Hunter” Tom Brown’s wife’s grandmother, this apple-packed cake is surprisingly fragile. Always the engineer, Brown says that slipping a greased, foil-covered cardboard roll over the tube pan’s center tube before unmolding the cooled cake will help keep it intact until you can get it to the cake plate.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 3 cups tart apples
  • 1 ¼ cups oil
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts or pecans
  • 1 teaspoon allspice 

Instructions

  1. Peel and chop the apples fine; set aside.
  2. Pour the oil, sugar, and eggs in a bowl and beat well.
  3. Sift the flour, salt, baking soda, baking powder, and spices together.
  4. Add the flour mixture to the creamed mix, and add the vanilla.
  5. Fold in apples and nuts, and pour into a tube pan.
  6. Bake in a 350°F oven for one hour or until a toothpick comes out clean.
