Mom's Apple Cake

Morning peeps! Let's do a quick update before I finish some work and make a dash to meet some darlings with Rima! Rima has brought along my new baby as well, yeay!

Before that....I made this cake on Saturday....a traditional Apple Cake I would call it. MIL loved it, but hubs and I thought that we like the version with buttermilk in the batter. Anyway, here's the recipe that I got from the Smitten Kitchen!

Mom’s Apple Cake
6 apples, I used Granny Smith's
1 tablespoon cinnamon
5 tablespoons sugar
2 3/4 cups flour, sifted
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup vegetable oil
2 cups sugar
1/4 cup orange juice
2 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
4 eggs
1 cup walnuts, I added

Preheat oven to 170C. I used my spanking brand new Nordic pan, hehe! 

Peel, core and chop apples into chunks. Toss with cinnamon and sugar and set aside.

Stir together flour, baking powder and salt in a large mixing bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk together oil, orange juice, sugar and vanilla. Mix wet ingredients into the dry ones, then add eggs, one at a time. Scrape down the bowl to ensure all ingredients are incorporated.

Pour half of batter into prepared pan. Spread half of apples over it. Pour the remaining batter over the apples and arrange the remaining apples on top. Bake for about 1 1/2 hours, or until a tester comes out clean.

This is how the top of the cake looked pictures of the sliced was dark by then, and we finished the cake that night! The cake was nice and all, but I thought it would have been nicer to serve it warm with Creme Anglaise :p
