Apple Cake


I’ve made the cake before for holiday dinners.

I use roughly this same recipe to make Apple, Carrot, or Zucchini Cake. It tastes like Fall. And so moist. Yum!!!

This specific recipe is the reason I was gifted a Kitchen Aid Food Processor the birthday that fell just a few days after the initial baking of this cake for a Thanksgiving dinner a few years back. Trust me that you don’t want to have to hand shred apples if it can be avoided!

TIPS: If you’ve got a stand mixer, use it for this recipe. The batter gets pretty heavy even before adding the apples!

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour + a very small amount to flour baking dish
