Recipe Monday: Jewish Apple Cake

     I don't know how I let this recipe slip by, seeing as we just celebrated Hanukkah. I picked this up from Relish.  This cake is absolutely wonderful and super easy.

Jewish Apple Cake (via Relish)

  • 6 cups peeled and thinly sliced Granny Smith Apples (about 3 large)
  • 1 ½ cups, plus 5 tablespoons granulated sugar, divided
  • 4 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 4 eggs
  • ½ cup light brown sugar
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • ½ cup orange juice
  • 2 ½ teaspoons vanilla extract

  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Grease, sugar and flour a 10” Bundt pan
  2. Combine apple slices with 5 tablespoons granulated sugar and cinnamon; set aside
  3. Combine flour, baking powder and salt in a bowl; set aside
  4. Beat eggs with remaining granulated sugar and brown sugar. Add vegetable oil, orange juice and vanilla; beat well. Gradually blend in flour mixture and mix until well blended (about 1 minute)
  5. Pour 1/3 of batter into pan. Top with half the apple slices (drain off any liquid). Pour in half the remaining batter and top with remaining apple slices. Top with remaining batter, making sure the apples are covered.
  6. Bake 55-60 minutes, until the top turns golden brown and a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Let cool 10 minutes in pan. Turn out on wire rack to cool.
This cake is certainly not a lie.
