This cake is very different from the apple cakes I make. It cooks the apples in a butter-cinnamon mixture before adding to cake batter!
Kelly Minter is a wonderful teacher and author of Bible studies for women for which I am taking right now! At the end of each week of study, Kelly gives recipes that I have loved! This apple cake sounds so good. I am making it this weekend!
1 cup chopped apples (I am using Gala)
2 tables butter
1 tables sugar
2 tables light brown sugar
1 teas cinnamon
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar (I use light)
1/2 cup softened butter
1 cup sour cream
1 teas vanilla
5 large eggs
2 1/2 cups flour
1 teas baking powder
1 teas baking soda
Pinch of salt
1/2 cup finely chopped walnuts or pecans
Preheat oven to 350 degrees!
Butter A Bundt cake pan, including the tube, and dust lightly with flour, shaking out any excess. Set aside.
in a skillet over medium heat, cook the apples with the butter, sugars, and cinnamon. Don’t over cook the apples as they should keep their shape. Set aside.
for the cake batter combine the sugars, butter, and sour cream in a large mixing bowl and beat until fluffy. Add vanilla and eggs until well combined. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture. Fold in apples and nuts. Bake at 350° for about 40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Transfer to wire rack and let it cool in the pan for 10 minutes before turning out on a plate. Frost with your favorite brown sugar or browned butter frosting!
