Our Famous Apple Cake
- 1 1/2 Cups vegetable oil
- 2 cups brown sugar
- 3 eggs
- 3 cups sifted flour (half whole wheat, half unbleached works well)
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/ tsp ground cardamom
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 3 Tbsp apple juice, milk, or water
- 3 cups chopped apples
- 1 Cup chopped nuts (opt. pecans, walnuts, almonds)
- 3 Tbsp seseme seeds
- powdered sugar
Pre-heat oven to 350F.
Butter a 10-inch bundt pan, two 9-inch cake pans or one 9×13 inch sheet pan. Sprinkle the bottom and sides of the pan with the seseme seeds.
Beat the oil and sugar until creamy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, levenings, and spices. Add the dry ingredients to the egg mixture along with the apple juice and vanilla, beating with a wooden spoon until the batter is smooth. Fold in the chopped apples and nuts.
Pour the batter into the pan and bake for 30-45min, depending upon the size of pan, until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
Sprinkle the top with sifted powdered sugar when the cake is cool.
