jewish apple cake recipe

This is another of my mom’s recipes. I’m not sure of its origin. On the first semi-snowy day of the year, it seemed like a perfect time to bake. Without fail, cooler weather brings out the baker in me! And this dessert makes the whole house smell so nice!

Here’s the recipe!

jewish apple cake

apple mixture:

4 apples
1/2 cup sugar
3 teaspoons cinnamon

Peel apples. Grate, slice, or cut apples into cubes. Put them in a bowl. Stir in sugar & cinnamon. Set aside.


3 cups flour
1 cup sugar
3 teaspoons baking powder
1 cup vegetable cooking oil
4 eggs
1/4 cup orange juice
2 1/2 teaspoons vanilla

Put all of the above in a bowl. Mix until smooth.

Grease a pan (lasagna pan). Put 1/2 batter in. Put 1/2 apple mixture in. Spread. Put remaining batter in. Put remaining apple mixture in. Lightly spread. Top with extra cinnamon, if desired.

Bake at 350 degrees for 45-60 minutes. Serve warm or cold. Is great warm with vanilla ice cream & whipped cream!
