Apple Cake

Every fall my families heads out to Patterson Fruit Farm for our yearly apple picking trip.

While I would like to say the goal is to pick the most delicious apples, we actually just end up stuffing our faces with hot apple fritters, cider and of course apples straight off the tree.

My mom always gives us a limit on how many apples to pick and then of course we end up picking about 50 pounds more.

What to do with all the apples?? Apple cake!

  • 3 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 1/2 cups light olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 cups flour
  • 3 cups chopped apples
  • ¼ cup milk
  • 1 cup chopped nuts (pecans are a great choice)
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon

Frosting Recipe:

  • ¼ pound butter
  • ¼ cup milk
  • 1 cup brown sugar

Cake Directions:

  • Combine items in order listed.
  • Spread in a 9″ x 12″ pan.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour.

Frosting Directions:

  • Frost while hot
  • Bring frosting ingredients to a boil

Hi, I’m so excited your here! My name is Amanda. Welcome to my blog Dishes and Denim! Writing is my outlet. It grounds me. So, I decided to start a blog where I can share my life with you! I was born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio. My son Bradley was born April 1st, 2018. He is my entire world. Simple is my specialty. I don’t have a lot of extra time and the time I do have I want to spend with my family. I love cooking, cleaning, photography, writing, sewing and running. Maintaining an organized and clutter-free home is a priority. I have a mild obsession with buying photography props, notebooks, coffee mugs, and pens. If there was an award for overanalyzing – I would win every year. I’m a hopeless romantic. My favorite color is turquoise. My perfect day includes waking up to a clean house and having a Starbucks Skinny Vanilla Latte and fresh fruit waiting for me…followed by a long hot shower then bumming around town in comfy jeans and a perfectly fitting white tee and my denim jacket (taking pictures and visiting antique shops). For dinner, I would request a cheeseburger (red onions, pickle, and ketchup) with a side salad (Balsamic, no tomatoes) Then end the day relaxing on my patio with twinkle lights, a glass of Entwine Cabernet and my family (bonus points for a campfire and S’mores). If you want to know more about me you can either invite me out for a glass of red wine or check out some of my blog posts!
