Family Recipe Friday: Romanian Apple Cake


Quick, easy, & yummy!
Romanian Apple Cake

Ingredients:
   
  • 5 apples, peeled & cored
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 1/2 c white sugar
  • 3/4 c vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 c chopped walnuts (optional)
   
Directions: 
    
1.  Preheat oven to 350F.  Grease & flour a 9 x 13 pan. Cut apples into 1" wedges and set aside.  (I do 1/2" wedges)

2.  In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs and sugar until blended. Mix in the baking soda, oil, cinnamon and vanilla. Stir in the flour, just until incorporated. Fold in the apples (and walnuts).

3. Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake in the preheated oven for 55 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into center of cake comes out clean. Allow to cool slightly.  Dust with powdered sugar. Serve warm or at room temperature.

OOh, Thank you for this! My grandparents are from Transylvania - now (and since 1918) in Romania but in Hungary when they came to America in 1911. I just celebrated their 100th wedding anniversary (10/13/1911) on my blog -- and my blogiversary last week with a post. Their letters and diaries and trove of documents inspired me to jump into this. I enjoy what you do with your blog!
