As we head into autumn one of my favorite recipes to make is my Aunt Cathleen’s Fresh Apple Cake. My aunt shared this recipe years ago with my mom and it has been a family favorite ever since! It is delicious anytime of the year but especially good in the fall when the apples are fresh.apple cake

 

I hope you enjoy it as much as we do! It is best to make this recipe in the late afternoon just before you plan serving dinner. There is nothing better than warm apple cake with some vanilla ice cream. My aunt has since passed away but every time I make this apple cake it brings back wonderful memories of her.

Stir to combine. Add remaining ingredients and mix well. It is often easier to use your hands to mix everything together as the mixture is quite stiff. Lightly grease a tube pan. Scrap mixture into the tube pan and bake at 350 for 1 1/2 hours.apples, apple cake, applecake, prudent living Let cool for a few minutes before inverting onto a plate or cake stand.Apple cake, apples, baking

 

There is nothing that reminds me of autumn than this delicious apple cake. It is good with fresh apples that you have just picked or apples that you want to use up from your refrigerator. Do you have a favorite recipe that has been passed down in your family? Any favorite apple recipes?

 

Bon Appetit!
