My usual criteria for a cake is chocolate, super moist, chocolate, wonderful creamy frosting and did I say chocolate? The other day I had a whole bin of apples that were not getting eaten and I knew they were at the point that they really needed to be used or tossed. I don’t like to toss. So enter this cake. Apple cake. I put on the word amazing in the title because this cake is truly that and knowing my normal criteria of chocolate I don’t throw that word around lightly. This cake is dense, moist, with a wonderful apple flavor and it does not have a frosting. Yep, that’s right no frosting! Just a wonderful brown sugary glaze that seeps into the cake. Tastes like carmel. Amazing! your social media marketing partner

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour a 9 x 13 inch pan.
  2. In a large bowl, sift together flour, cinnamon, sugar, salt and baking soda. Add oil, applesauce, eggs and vanilla. Mix well by hand. This batter will be very thick. Fold in the chopped apples and nuts (if you want nuts). Spread evenly in the pan.
  3. Bake for 40 minutes. Poke holes throughout the cake with a toothpick. Glaze while still hot. Let the glaze seep into the cake and cool slightly before slicing.
  5. In a saucepan combine the brown sugar, milk and butter. Bring to a boil and stir constantly for two minutes. Pour over cake while still hot. Let the glaze seep.
