German Apple Dapple Cake

Thrifty Thursday II



I also took this cake to our fellowship meal. I baked it in a bundt pan. It can also be baked in a 10x13 pan. I had to pour the topping on and allow it to set. Though I think it would be better to pour the warm sauce over cake slices before serving.

Cake ingredients
1 1/2 cups vegetable oil
3 eggs
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
3 cups all purpose flour
1 cup chopped walnuts
4 cups chopped apples

Topping ingredients
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup butter
1/4 cup heavy whipping cream

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and lightly flour bundt pan. I use baker's Pam for this step. Stir flour, baking soda, and salt together. Set aside

2. In a large bowl, cream oil, eggs, brown sugar, and vanilla. Stir in flour mixture, walnuts, and apples.
3. Pour into prepared pan and bake for 30-45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.

4. In a sauce pan, melt the butter and brown sugar for the topping over medium heat. Stir in whipping cream and bring to a boil. Continue boiling for 3 minutes, stirring frequently. Remove from heat and cool slightly. Pour over cooled cake or cake slices as serving.
