I have had this recipe for this sweet apple cake written down in my recipe notebook for months and months now, and the sad thing is that I do not have a reference for it! I do not remember where I got it from. But I enjoyed it as if it were mine! A beautifully sweet cake, can be even eaten warm. I love how the apples give it a fruity taste yet they’re almost totally dissolved.
To make one loaf pan of this sweet Apple Olive Oil Cake, you need:
– 1/4 cup sugar
– 4 eggs
– A pinch of salt
– 1/3 cup of olive oil
– 2 cups flour
– 2 tsp baking powder
– 3 apples, peeled and diced finely
– 1 Tbsp butter
– 2 Tbsp sugar
– 1 tsp vanilla
Preheat the oven to 350F.
Fry the diced apples with the butter. Sprinkle the 2 Tbsp sugar and vanilla on top and cook until the apples become soft.
For the cake batter, beat the eggs and sugar together in a bowl. Add the olive oil and mix well.
Sift the dry ingredients in a separate bowl, then cup by cup, add the dry ingredients to the egg mixture.
Whisk well. Finally fold in the apple mush.
Bake for 40 minutes.
Let the cake cool before slicing it and serving it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a cup of spiced black tea.
