Today I am thankful for the health of my children.

I made this tasty apple cake over the weekend….the recipe is so simple, I tweaked it a tad and will post the adjustments after the recipe link.

An apple a day keeps the doctor away….do you suppose that includes apple in cake?? HA!

Here is the recipe link (I still cannot figure out how to add links, so I will copy and paste the recipe…if someone would like to help me out in the links category, I would muchly appreciate it!)

Apple Cake:


  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 1/4 cups vegetable oil
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 3 1/2 cups chopped apples
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 1/4 cups packed brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup butter


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9×13 inch pan.
  2. In a large bowl, Sift together flour, sugar, salt and soda. Make a well in the center and add oil, eggs and vanilla. Mix well (batter will be thick). Fold in chopped apples and nuts. Spread into a 9×13 inch pan.
  3. Bake at 350 degrees for 40 to 50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into cake comes out clean. Glaze while still hot.
  4. To make the glaze: In a saucepan, combine brown sugar, milk and butter. Bring to a boil and continue cooking for 2 1/2 minutes, stirring constantly. Pour over cake while still hot.
My adjustments were as follows:
~I halved the sugar measurement
~Added 1t of cinnamon
~Cut the glaze measurements in half (it makes WAY too much if you use the recipe measurements.
Happy Baking!  🙂
