Aunt Minnie is one of the rare cooks who has passed her art down to the next generations of would-be cooks. She is known for this fragrant fall treat, a delectable apple cake. Her recipe can be found in New Recipes from Moosewood. I have adapted it just a bit and do can you. Get creative and have fun.
This recipe calls for half whole wheat flour in a genre of cooking that typically uses only white flour. 100% whole grain is the ideal, but in this case, the cake is too dry.
Slices of this cake freeze well to be toted in lunch bags. It makes an excellent muffin as well.

Ohhh…this sounds so good! My mom makes a fresh apple cake and it is so delicious. With apples being in season, I’ve had a hankering for this cake. :0)
YUM! the boys are adorable…I can’t believe how they’ve grown.
I know, Diane. It’s crazy. Alastair will be three in a few weeks.
Saw you over on Add a Pinch – this looks lovely! My grandmother used to make a cake very similar, and when I think of her now every time I make it.
I wasn’t aware you can use whole wheat flour in cakes. Doesn’t it make them a tad… bitter?
Or why not use entirely white flour instead?
The risk isn’t so much that they are bitter but that they are overly heavy. In our household, we do use whole grain flours because of their mineral content. If my children are going to eat cake, they might as well get more iron and zinc out of it.
this looks so delicious! Came over from Made By YOu Monday, and so glad I did! Would love for you to come link up to my Tasty Tuesday party going on now. http://nap-timecreations.blogspot.com/2011/11/broccoli-cheese-soup-and-tasty-tuesday.html
mmmm, this just reminded me of a cake that my grandma used to make. I am going to have to dig up the recipe and see if I can make it real food friendly. 😉

I am writing this down to try later, and am wondering when to add the apples and walnuts?
This looks lovely. My husband has mentioned wanting an apple dessert, this might just fit the bill!

I love cakes even if you get a lot of calorie in it and even it is too sweet but still love the taste of it and the fragrance that it leaves in the oven upon baking it. I just don’t know how to make one but I guess baking is not totally for me. I am really ashame to share that I always failed whenever I try baking and none of my baking stuff had been successful. But I will never surrender though I always end up as disaster and damnably baker.:)
I really love eating cakes and pastries. It looks very delicious! YUMMY! Hope I can make some of it during this holy week season.
I love apples because of its nutritional benefit for my body. Using fresh apples for a delicious apple cake is what most bakers would really prefer. I must try this recipe.
