Old Fashioned Apple Cake

1. What is your recipe?

“Old Fashioned Apple Cake”
Recipe from Mistycake1234

2 cups sugar
2 large eggs
1 and 1.5 cups vegetable oil
3 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
3 cups of raw apples, peeled and chopped
1 cup of raisins
2 teaspoons vanilla

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease large tube pan
on bottom and sides and flour bottom of pan.

Bake at 375 degrees for 1 hour. Test for doneness by
sticking an uncooked spaghetti noodle in the cake;
if it comes out clean, the cake is done. If not, bake another
10 minutes and test again.

2. What is it about this recipe that you love?

This is my grandmother’s recipe. I remember making it with my
mother as a child. I would get to chop the apples. I still have
the original chopper in my kitchen today.

3. How did you learn to make this recipe?

In my mother’s kitchen, we would measure the ingredients and chop and cream these ingredients together to make a warm cake in winter.

4. Please share a story or memory to go along with the recipe.

This cake is rich and moist, and in my memory it gets better the longer it sits after you bake it – two weeks later, this cake is still good, if there is any at all left!
