Apple Dapple Cake

Apples are in, a sure sign that an apple dapple cake will soon be on the table.  If you want a sure-fire hit, give this recipe a try, but be sure to cut your own piece first otherwise it might be gone before you get your share!

Apple Dapple Cake

3 eggs

1 1/2 cup vegetable oil

2 cups sugar

3 cups flour

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon soda

2 teaspoons vanilla

3 cups chopped apples

1 1/2 cup chopped nuts

Mix eggs, salad oil and sugar. Gradually add combined flour, salt and soda. Stir in vanilla, apples and nuts. Pour into greased and floured bundt pan and bake for one hour at 350.

While the cake is hot pour topping over the cake and let cool. (I poke holes in the top to allow topping to seep into the cake.)


1/2 cup butter

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/4 cup milk

In a saucepan, combine ingredients and stir over medium heat for 2-3 minutes or until sugar is dissolved.
