Fresh Apple Cake by MeMom

Recipe by  

"I store my cake in a plastic cake carrier turned upside down. The icing will run off, therefore a regular cake plate will not work unless you have one with high sides. This cake is much better the day after. It is so very moist. It is even better if you put your slice in the microwave for 10 seconds to just have it warm. My family would disown me if I did not have this cake for holiday get-togethers. Nothing better with a cup of coffee."

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a fluted tube pan.
  2. Mix 3 cups all-purpose flour, white sugar, baking soda, cinnamon, allspice, salt, cloves, and nutmeg together in a bowl.
  3. Beat eggs in a separate large bowl; add vegetable oil, buttermilk, and 1 tablespoon vanilla. Beat until smooth. Pour egg mixture into flour mixture; stir together with a large spoon. Fold apples and pecans into batter. Pour batter into the prepared pan.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until a knife inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean, 60 to 75 minutes. Cool cake in pan.
  5. Cook and stir margarine and brown sugar together in a saucepan over medium heat until sugar is dissolved, about 5 minutes. Add 2 tablespoons flour; stir constantly until combined. Stir in milk and 1 tablespoon vanilla. Cook and stir until thickened, 5 minutes.
  6. Invert cake onto a plastic cake carrier or container; poke holes over entire cake using a knife. Pour hot icing over entire cake. Pour any remaining icing into the center of the cake. The icing will absorb into the cake overnight.

This was a hit! I regularly make dessert for a friend's card club and after at least two years of baking for them, this was their favorite. The cake was moist and flavorful but the icing is truly what separates this from all other apple cakes. Almost like German Chocolate cake icing without the pecans and coconut. I followed the directions except I always add a little extra vanilla. Firm Golden delicious apples were used. Highly recommend!

I've made this recipe twice exactly as printed and our family had the same reaction twice. The cake was okay (nothing special), but the "frosting" was awful. It kind of tasted like diluted sweetened paste. I've deleted this one from my recipe box.

We love this version of fresh apple cake. I didn't change a thing! That is until I poured a quarter cup of bourbon in the leftover half just as an experiment. Awesome! It is more crumbly that way, but this recipe makes an awesome whiskey cake. Just sayin'

I made this cake for Thanksgiving this year. I'm a beginner baker but this was easy and turned out great. Moist and the icing was really good. I didn't have any allspice so I just added more cinnamon and nutmeg.
