Docandie felt a bit peckish this afternoon so decided to bake an apple cake.
The recipe for Teddie's Apple Cake showed up in the email a few days ago and Docandie posted the recipe on Facebook but today thought it was a perfect time to give it a try.
The recipe is quite simple, if anyone is interested, it is HERE
This cake takes longer to bake than many cakes because of the WET ingredients (apples). Mine took even longer because Docandie did not use a tube pan. So it is important to TEST to see if the cake is done in the center. This one took 2 hours at 350° F. And Docandie tested it with a probe thermometer to make sure it read 200° F. in the center. A tube pan or a shallower, wider pan will of course bake more rapidly.
Docandie should add that she has become lazy in recent years and has converted to using the DISPOSABLE paper baking moulds that come in so many different sizes and shapes and make it much easier to give such cakes as gifts without agonizing if one is to ever see a favorite baking pan again. This counts as a "word to the wise" as wisdom learned by experience is being passed on...
