Apple Dapple Cake

This cake is super delicious and moist (and the batter is also delicious). Our entire family loves it. This cake would be great in the fall when apples are in season and at their best, but it taste great at anytime of the year.


           For Cake:
  • 1 1/2 cups oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 3 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 3 cups chopped raw apples
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped pecans or walnuts, optional
       For topping:
  • 1 stick (1/2 cup) butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup milk

 Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
       Mix together oil, vanilla, sugar, and eggs.
      Add flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon.
     Stir/fold in chopped apples and pecans/ walnuts, if desired.
     Pour into well greased and floured pan ( 1 Bunt pan, 1 9x13 pan, or 2
loaf pans)
     Bake for 45 minutes to an hour, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

   Combine butter, brown sugar, and milk in a sauce pan and heat until well blended. Pour over still warm cake while the topping is hot.
   Let cool and enjoy.
