|The finished product.|
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup oil
3 cups self-rising flour (not what I regularly use, but I usually have some on hand).
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3 cups peeled, chopped apples
3/4 cup chopped black walnuts or pecans (I used pecans.)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Grease and flour a tube pan. You may also use a 9 x 13-inch baking pan.
- In a bowl beat the sugar and the eggs. Stir in the oil. Add the flour and cinnamon and mix until well blended. Stir in the apples, walnuts, and vanilla. Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Bake for 40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean.
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup butter
1/4 cup evaporated milk
- In a saucepan combine the brown sugar, butter, and evaporated milk. Bring the mixture to a boil. Simmer for 2 to 3 minutes. Pour the glaze over the warm cake in the pan. Let cake cool before removing it from the pan.
I think this cake is delicious! It would be good with a scoop of ice cream or some whipped topping, but I am never able to wait for the extras to be added.:-)
As I mentioned earlier, I had apples for this cake and a pie both. Here is a better picture of the apple pie.

Of course I have not mentioned all the ways we enjoy apples, nor have I even begun to mention all the varieties. I know everybody has a favorite for snacking as well as for cooking.
Now, it's on to pumpkin! What fun we will have with that!:-)
As our temperatures have fallen, I hope you have been able to escape damage from frost. There are those who have said that fall greens are actually better once they have a little frost.:-)
Thank you for reading. I appreciate your comments.
