Apple Dapple Cake

This cake has been passed down for generations in my family and is at every family get-together. We also make this cake as mini loaves of bread to give as gifts to neighbors and friends. The smell and first bite transports you straight to mamaw’s house at the holidays and brings back such sweet memories.

Ingredients

  • CAKE:
  • 1 1/2 cups canola or vegetable oil
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 cups self-rising flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 4 cups peeled, chopped apples (honeycrisp or Granny Smith)
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • TOPPING:
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar

  • Recipe

    Preheat oven to 325°F. Using a hand mixer or stand mixer, whip together oil and sugar until well combined, about 1 minute. Add eggs, and mix an additional minute. Add flour and cinnamon and mix on medium-low speed. Once combined, stir in apples, pecans and vanilla. Pour the batter into a buttered 13x9” pan. Bake 1 hour and 15 minutes.

    When 5 minutes remains on the cake, mix together butter, brown sugar and milk in a small saucepan. Boil 3 minutes, then pour evenly over the hot cake.
