Apple Spice Cake

Apple Spice Cake
    My co-worker asked me to make a spice cake for his mother-in law birthday.  Since this is apple week at NDY, adding apples to a spice cake would knock it out the park.  I had this recipe bookmarked for a while now.  I made some adjustments to the cake to make it even a better cake.  When I brought the cake to work he was so happy.  I must say this cake is great.  I had to make a small piece for myself, and have it with some homemade vanilla ice cream.

Apple Spice Cake


1 1/3 cups vegetable oil
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 tbsp. ground cinnamon
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. ground ginger
1/2 tsp. apple pie spice
1 cup white sugar
1 cup light brown sugar, packed
3 large eggs
3 Granny Smith apples, cored and cut into 1/2 inch pieces
1 cup walnuts (optional)
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract


1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Spray Bundt-pan with a nonstick spray with flour.  Set aside.
2.  Sift flour, sugar, cinnamon, baking soda, salt, ginger, and allspice together in a medium bowl.  Set aside.
3.  Using an electric mixer fitted with paddle attachment, combine vegetable oil, sugar and eggs on high speed for 2 minutes.
4.  Turn mixture on low and gradually pour dry ingredients, until combined.  Add apples, and nuts if desired until fully incorporated. Add vanilla extract.
5.  Pour batter in pan, and bake until a cake tester inserted comes out clean, 75 to 80 minutes.
6.  Remove from oven, and cool slightly on a wire rack.

Recipe slightly adapted from Martha Stewart


  1. Yum! I love the fall and fresh locally grown apples. I'm not a fan of apple pie, but this recipe looks right up my alley!

  2. Yummy! I do love a good bundt cake--so easy to serve a crowd. this looks like the perfect fall dessert.
