Apple Harvest Cake

It’s definitely apple picking weather and we had a quick trip last weekend to pick some. Josh lifted up Owen to reach the high ones.

So I have apples on the brain. Here’s another gem from a 1983 church cookbook in my collection: Apple Harvest Cake. You don’t find too many vintage recipes with whole wheat flour, though this still has a lot of sugar.

1 1/4 C. flour

1 C. sugar

1 T cinnamon

1 tsp. salt

3/4 C. oil

3 eggs

1 C. chopped nuts

1 C. whole wheat flour

3/4 C. brown sugar (packed)

2 tsp. baking powder

1/2 tsp. soda

1 tsp. vanilla

2 C. peeled and chopped apple

Tube pan, greased and floured

325F  50 – 65 minutes

Blend together all above ingredients until moistened except apples and nuts. Add 2 cups peeled and chopped apples and nuts. Mix well. Bake until toothpick comes out clean. Glaze with 1/2 – 1 cup confectioners’ sugar, 1/2 tsp. vanilla, 3 – 4 tsp. milk (add more if needed) mixed, drizzle over cake. Serves 10 – 12.

    Happy fall, Amy! I love using whole wheat flour in my desserts so I was glad to see this recipe. I don’t know if I’ve seen it in a vintage recipe either.
    I’m making some apple crisps and am waiting for a nice cool day to make an apple pie. I still have apples left over from last year, so I need to be baking more.
    Good to hear from you again on your website!
