One of my favorite things to do in the fall...bake a Fresh Apple Cake. It has kinda become my own personal tradition. Every fall, my in-laws go to the mountains of Virginia and get apples. Every fall, I make an apple cake.
Fresh Apple Cake
2 Cups Sugar
1 1/2 Cups Crisco Oil
3 Cups Flour
1 Teaspoon Baking Soda
1 Teaspoon Salt
1 Teaspoon Black Walnut Flavoring
1 Cup Coconut
1/2 Cup Nuts (Pecans or Walnuts)
3 Cups Chopped Apples (2 Large Apples)
Cream sugar and oil; add eggs, flour, soda, salt and flavoring. In separate bowl mix coconut, nuts and apples. Fold into creamed mixture. Bake in a greased and floured tube pan in a 300 degree oven for 1 1/2 hours.
1/2 stick Margarine
1 Cup Brown Sugar
3 Tablespoons Milk
Combine in saucepan and cook for 10 minutes. Brush on hot cake with a pastry brush.
