Apple Harvest Cake

Fall is soon upon us.

The apple orchard is ready for picking.
The first apples of the harvest were the start of
one of my family's favorite desserts...
a fall tradition...
Apple Harvest Cake.

I thought I would share the recipe with you here....
It is marvelously delicious!!
I promise you won't be disappointed!

Apple Harvest Cake

4 cups peeled and diced apples
2 cups sugar
Mix together and let stand for 1 hour.

To apple/sugar mixture, add:
1 cup light olive oil
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla

Mix and add dry ingredients:
3 cups flour
2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cinnamon
2 tsp. nutmeg

Mix and add:
1 cup chopped walnuts

Bake in greased and floured Bundt pan
350 degrees for 1 hour.

Frost with your favorite butter cream or cream cheese frosting.

(I had no cream cheese so I made some whipped cream and added
that to my butter cream frosting....light and yummy!)

You  can bake this in muffin pans (adjust time) and leave
unfrosted for a delicious breakfast muffin.

I went apple picking over the weekend and have been looking on the internet for a good apple cake. Looks like I found one .

I think I'll make one and share it with my neighbors!!! My recipe has no nutmeg and only 2 cups of flour..don't have to let it sit for 2 hours but that's not a bad idea

Growing up, this cake was one of my mother's specialties. Thanks for the memories. It looks so delicious!
