Happy Friday, everyone!! Here’s a couple more recipes that are favorites in my house! This first recipe was actually given to my hubby. He came home from work one day last year and told me we had to make this cake. Several of the guys he associates with in the construction field had been passing around this recipe and said it was fantastic! (I never envisioned construction workers as the recipe swapping type!! LOL ) This is the best apple cake I’ve ever tasted!!
This recipe originated from a B&O Railroad Conductor named Lawrence Harper and is formatted the way he wrote it.
1 1/2 c. vegetable oil
2 c. sugar
2 tsp. vanilla - Beat well
Then add & beat:
1 tsp. cinnamon
3 c. flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
4 c. diced apples
1 c. chopped nuts - Mix well
Pour all ingredients into a bunt or tube pan and bake in a preheated oven 350 degrees for 1 1/2 hours.
1 c. brown sugar
1/4 c. milk
1/4 c. butter – Boil for 3 minutes
As soon as cake is removed from oven, pour glaze over cake while hot. Let set in pan until cool.
These next two recipes go together. My daughter, Brittney, LOVES this stuff!! In fact, when she saw me getting these recipes out, she got excited, thinking I was going to make them! Probably sometime next week, Britt!
