Putting A Dent In The Apples

September 22, 2009

Apple Bundt Cakewm
When I said that we were going to put our box of apples to good use, I wasn't kidding.

Yesterday I worked in Philadelphia and got back right around dinner time. As soon as I walked through the door, the big box of apples was staring at me and calling my name.

A normal person would settle for a plain apple cut up and maybe add some peanut butter, but hey, I never said that I was normal:) Why settle for a plain apple, when you could have something warm and comforting!!

As I fed everyone dinner, I quickly put together this Apple Bundt Cake.....really, it was not hard at all. It is the one that my Mom always made....I am not sure where the recipe originated, but I do remember that everyone who tried it, LOVED IT!!

Here is what you will need:

1 cup of Vegetable Oil
1 1/2 cups of Granulated Sugar
3 Eggs
1 tsp of Vanilla
1 tsp of Cinnamon
1/4 tsp of Ground Nutmeg
2 Cups of Diced Apples
1 Cup of Chopped Walnuts(optional)if you omit the nuts, add a little extra apple
2 Cups of Flour
1 tsp of Salt
1 tsp of Baking Soda

Mix together the Oil, Sugar, Eggs, Cinnamon, Ground Nutmeng, and Vanilla. Then mix in the apples.

In a separate bowl sift the Flour, Salt, and Baking Soda. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix until blended.

Pour into a Greased and Floured Bundt Pan and Bake at 350 Degrees for 40-45 minutes.

I thought that you might want a closer look:)

Every bite was filled with little diced apples and it was so moist, it just melted in your mouth. Not only did it taste great, but it made the house smell wonderful too!!

Now it is time for a true confession....
I couldn't stop at one cake!! This cake tasted so good, that I made a second one early this morning. We are getting some company later this week and I thought it would be perfect to serve with coffee for breakfast.

I have to run.....last night the apples were calling my name, tonight the treadmill is beckoning....actually, it is more like screaming at me:)

Colleen and Jan,

Even though Monday I worked in the big city, most days I work from home...or virtual office. That is how I get so much done.....I am able to sneak in little things here and there. If I had to punch a clock from 8-5 everyday and add commute time it would be a whole other story:)

Another plus...."Half Gaelic" also works virtual office from home a couple days a week.....it is a huge help.

Sharie said...

OH Yum!! I might actually even be able to attempt that one:)

Marla said...

Dang woman! I gained 5 lbs just looking at the pictures of that yummy-looking thing!

I'd like to order one up for Philly please. Thanks in advance. ;)

Denise said...

Now I feel the need to go apple picking...yummy!

Aspiemom said...

I make that same recipe, only it calls for chocolate chips, also. I make it w/o the chips sometimes for it to be a little healthier and love it that way, too.

I don't think we have apples ready yet down here. Even if they are, I'd have to take a boat right now to get them!

Kerry said...

Oh Lisa- I really want a piece of that cake! I think I can smell it! Looks yummy and beautiful.

Jodee Leader said...

That cake looks picture perfect! Can you please whip up a third one and send it our way? It would take Jan and I hours to make that thing!

I am still hoping to get to an apple orchard soon and, if so, we will try this recipe out! Your company will love it for breakfast!

Kayce said...

YUM YUM!! I'm making that! After I eat my peanut butter and apple. ;)

Wanda said...

It seems everyone is talking apples these days. Your recipe looks divine. I'll have to try it. Thanks. You're so generous.

I'm so glad to know you work some days from home (and hubby too). It does make a huge difference in the amount of time saved each day. I'm very happy for you for that. It'll be extra great when your new little one arrives too. (Bet you like the sound of that!)

Courtney said...
