It’s apple pickin’ time!
These cooler fall days just seem to ask for warmer, heartier meals. I have been making this apple cake for over 40 years! I love the smell of anything with cinnamon baking in it; it always smells so cozy and inviting to me! My friend Connie Snyder shared this recipe with me many years ago it’s a favorite.
Apple Pudding Cake:
Cream together 2 cups sugar and 1 stick (1/2 cup) butter or margarine, then mix in 2 beaten eggs. Add 2 cups flour mixed with 2 tsp baking soda, 1 tsp cinnamon and 1 tsp nutmeg; mix well and add 4 cups chopped, peeled apples and chopped nuts. The batter will be very thick. Spread in a greased 9x13 cake pan and bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 25-30 min until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool.
Serve with the following sauce:
1 cup sugar
1 cup milk
1/2 cup butter (no substitutes)
2 Tbs cornstarch
Combine and cook over medium heat until thick, stirring constantly. Add 1 tsp vanilla, serve warm over cake, the sauce really makes the cake! Have a great week!
