4-5 Apples

1 lemon (juiced)

1 ½ cup flour

1 ½ cup sugar

¾ cup oil

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp cinnamon

4 eggs

2/3 cups raisins (optional)


Preheat Oven to 350

Grease a 9” springform pan

Peel and slice apples, arrange in the pan

Pour lemon juice on top of apples

Mix all the other ingredients and pour over the apples

Bake for 50-60 minutes, until toothpick comes out clean

Let cool before you open spring form

Sprinkle powder sugar before serving

There is no correct way to arrange the apples! Just lay them down so they form layers. They don’t have to be even. The beauty of this recipe is that the cake mix fills in all the gaps between the apples and the apples create a beautiful design on top as well. You don’t have to be creative, just place the apples and pour the ingredients over it and voila!

The cake is very tasty when its warm or cold. Its very light and generally doesn’t last longer than a day in our household, but after a day I would recommend storing it in the refrigerator.

Wait until you serve it to sprinkle powder sugar, otherwise it absorbs into the cake and disappears

I personally prefer it without raisins, but golden raisins are a great addition as are walnut pieces.

Any apples work great, my preference is granny smith!

Hope you all enjoy this delicious cake.

Wishing you a happy, healthy and SWEET new year!
