Fresh Apple Spice Cake


Going to be a new fall favourite when the apples are fresh. Thanks to Sue Becker at our USA Ankarsrum Distributorship for this recipe.  It is featured in her wonderful book “The Essential Home Ground Flour Book” full of great recipes and information on the benefits of home grinding your grain and much more.  This cake is absolutely yummy.   I know already my dad will love it when I take him some tomorrow.

  • 2 cups finely chopped and cored apples (Sue peeled but I left them on)
  • 1 cup chopped nuts (walnuts or pecans)

With the mixer speed at about 4 o’clock cream together the butter and honey, add the egg, vanilla, sour cream and sugar. Mix well.  In another bowl combine the flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon.  Add this 1 cup at a time to the wet ingredients with the mixer at 3 o’clock. Dial down the speed even a bit more and fold in the apples and nuts. Spread in greased pan.  Bake for about 25 – 30 minutes till toothpick comes out clean.  Wonderful served with fresh whipped cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon.
