Contributor post by Michelle of EviesToolEmporium

We spent the day sharing our recipes during the first Etsy Christmas In July Favorite Holiday Exchange! Since the #EtsyCIJ team is worldwide we held a virtual #CIJFavoriteHolidayRecipeExchange right here on our blog!

The recipe exchange was held today, July 5th. As I mentioned the team is international and we received recipes from many countries!

We wanted to include as many of our talented team members as possible! The participation was fantastic! Our team members are creative chefs!

Each team member shared with us their recipe, as well as a little bit about their memories of holiday cooking and baking. I personally look forward to making a few of these new recipes this season! I added them to the assortment I bake each year! Please join me as we conclude the #CIJFavoriteHolidayRecipeExchange!

CIJ Favorite Holiday Recipe Exchange – Old Fashioned Apple Cake

Contributor post by Cindy of Cynhumphrey

Let’s Make Old Fashioned Apple Cake – Recipe From Mistycat1234 Of carolinagirlz2

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!
