My photo
My favorite memories have all centered around friends and family enjoying a meal together! It might have been a special holiday or a celebration, or it might have been dinner with friends at a great restaurant. I hope you will enjoy some of my favorite recipes and take time to fellowship with those seated at your table. You might make a memory to last forever!

Fresh Apple Cake

Granny Smith Apples, Gala Apples, Golden Delicious Apples!  I love all apple desserts; pies, cakes, tarts...you name it!  However, this apple cake recipe is one of my favorites to bake during the fall season...the aroma of cinnamon fills the house with such comfort!  Enjoy this extremely moist cake, chock full of pecans and draped in a rich, gooey syrup; share with a friend over coffee or a giant glass of milk!

Fresh Apple Cake

3 cups diced apples                                                 
2 cups sugar                                                               
1 1/4 cup oil                                                                   
3 eggs
3 cups plain flour
1 tsp. salt, baking soda and cinnamon
1 cup nuts
1 tsp. vanilla

Mix dry ingredients and set aside.  Beat eggs; add oil and sugar. Mix until well combined.  Add dry ingredients and mix well.  Add apples, nuts and vanilla.  Pour batter into well greased tube pan and bake for appx. 1 hour.

Sauce:  1 stick of butter, 1 cup brown sugar, 1/4 cup milk

Shortly before cake is done, make the sauce.  Melt butter in large saucepan; stir in sugar and milk. Bring to a rolling boil and continue to boil for 1 minute.  Pour over cake as soon as you remove it from the oven.  Let stand 1 hour, then turn out onto cake plate.
