Apple Dapple Cake
Apple Dapple Cake is an old hand-me-down recipe that's been in my files for over 40 years. It's fresh apples and chopped pecans held together with just the right amount of a cinnamon and vanilla batter.
- 1 cup canola oil
- 2 cups sugar
- 3 eggs
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 2 Granny Smith apples peeled, cored and chopped
- 2 Gala apples peeled, cored and chopped
- 1 cup pecans chopped
- 3 cups self-rising flour
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 cup light brown sugar
- 1 1/2 sticks butter
- 1/4 cup milk
Mix oil, sugar and eggs on medium speed until light and lemony. Add vanilla and mix.
Sift together flour, and cinnamon. Gradually beat into egg mixture.
The batter is thick.
Stir in apples and pecans. You need muscles for this thick batter.
Pour into a well-greased and floured tube pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour.
Remove from oven.
Prepare glaze by adding the brown sugar, butter and milk to a small saucepan. Stir ingredients and bring to a boil. Continue boiling for 3 minutes stirring constantly. Pour the hot glaze over the hot cake in the pan.
Let the cake completely cool in the pan before turning it onto a cake plate. The glaze soaks down into the cake. You can't even imagine how moist it is.
