Aunt Laura’s German Apple Cake

Today’s family recipe is yet another from Aunt Laura (John’s aunt). It was also given to me by her daughter Ginny. I have not made this myself yet but I plan to! It sounds delicious!


2 cups finely chopped apples

1 cup sugar

¼ cup vegetable oil (Ginny recommends light olive oil)

1 egg beaten

1 cup unsifted all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon cinnamon

½ teaspoon baking soda

¼ teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 teaspoon baking powder

½ cup chopped nuts or chocolate chips or raisins, optional


1. Place apples in a bowl, add sugar and stir to mix. Let stand one hour.

2. Add oil and egg to the mix and stir in.

3. Sift flour, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Stir into mixture (DO NOT BEAT IN) and then stir in the vanilla.

4. Place mixture into a greased and floured 8″ square pan. Bake at 350º for 45-55 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes.

5. Serve frosted if you like or with ice cream or whipped cream!
