Granny Seale's Fresh Apple Cake

Find this recipe at Meal Plan Monday Southern Plate

In the early 70's, we attended church with Granny Seale. She gave me the recipe for this wonderful cake during that, I guess that means that I have been making it for about 40 years! Wow!
A friend of German decent always welcomed this cake for his birthday, his mother had always made it for him prior to her passing. It is so moist and apple season is a perfect time to make it!


or Apple Dapple Cake
Or as I call it...GRANNY SEALE'S APPLE CAKE (she went to church with us in Robinwood, AL in the early 70's) that is when I first began making this cake.

1 1/4 c. salad/vegetable oil
1 c. brown sugar
3 eggs
3 c. flour
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. vanilla
1 c. chopped pecans or walnuts
4 c. chopped apples

Mix oil, sugar, eggs, well with vanilla. Sift flour, salt, baking soda,  gradually add to egg mixture. Stir in nuts and apples. Pour into greased & floured  Bundt pan.Bake at 350°F approximately 1 hour (or test with toothpick). Very moist. Allow to cool in pan after pouring frosting/glaze over.

Frosting (optional):

1/2 c. butter
1/2 c. brown sugar
1/4 cup half & half

Bring to boil & cook for 3 minutes. Pour over hot cake in pan, allow to sit in pan until cool.

  2. Nancy, this is the only one that I have used since the 70's. Had a friend of German descent & used to make it for his birthday like his mother did when she was living. Everyone loves it!
