Serve this tender fruit and nut cake for dessert in the fall.


  • 2 eggs, slightly beaten
  • 2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt or 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 1/2 cups peeled and chopped Granny Smith apples
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup cooking oil
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 cup chopped pecans, toasted
  • Powdered sugar (optional)


  1. Allow eggs to stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, grease and lightly flour a 10-inch fluted tube pan; set aside. In a medium bowl, stir together flour, cinnamon, baking soda and salt. Set aside. In another bowl toss apples with lemon juice; set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine granulated sugar, oil, eggs and vanilla. Beat with an electric mixer on medium speed for 2 minutes. Add flour mixture and beat on low speed just until combined. Fold in apples and pecans. (Batter will be thick.) Spoon batter into the prepared pan.
  3. Bake in a 350 degree F oven about 1 hour or until a wooden toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool cake in pan on a wire rack for 15 minutes. Carefully remove from pan. Cool thoroughly on wire rack. If you like, sprinkle with powdered sugar. Cover; store in refrigerator. Makes 12 servings.

Since I first found this recipe a few years ago, I've made at least 8 cakes. Sometimes I mix up the apples for a different flavor and texture, or sub hickory nuts or walnuts for pecans. All it gets is a bit of powdered sugar dusted on top when it comes out of the oven. This cake freezed well (I cut 8 to 10 slices wrapped in plastic wrap and then in foil into freezer bags). Everyone loves it. Great choice for pot luck or family reunions cause you get so many slices.
