Apple Cake with Caramel Sauce

When searching thru my mother’s old recipe box, this was one of our favorite during apple season. 









Apple Cake

2 cups apples peeled and chopped

1 egg

1 cup sugar

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1/3 cup vegetable oil

1/4 cup pecans, chopped (optional)

1 cup all purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon baking soda

Mix apples with egg and vegetable oil.   Add the dry ingredients and blend well.   Batter will be stiff.    Place in a 9 inch pie plate sprayed with non-stick spray.   Bake in 350 preheated oven for about 40-45 minutes until toothpick inserted comes out clean.        This recipe can be doubled and put in a 9 by 13 can pan.

Caramel Sauce.

1/2 cup sugar

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup butter

1/2 cup cream

1 Tablespoon flour

1 teaspoon vanilla

Mix flour and white sugar, add brown sugar, butter and cream into a saucepan.   Boil for 1 1/2 minutes.    Remove from heat and add vanilla.     

To serve:      Place the cake on a plate and drizzle caramel sauce (can warm in microwave) over the top.    If you want you can also serve with a dallop of whipped cream.

enjoy,       Karen

    Betty…..That’s fine to grab any recipe I post here. All the recipes (and those coming) are from my Mother’s recipe box and since I have no desire to write a cookbook anyone can use them.

    This comment is not directly related to your post, although the recipe looks really yummy… I accidentaly came across your name in a comment you made on another blog I came across at the APQS chat, and I jumped in my chair when I read your name: It is the same as my mother’s… and she was Norwegian. It is not a very common name back here. I hope I am not rude to ask: Are you of Norwegian heritage?
    Of course I have read my way through your blog – I really enjoyed it!
    Kind regards,
    Anne Langseth Rønningen from Norway

      Anne……I myself am not Norweigen….but my husband is…..Langseth isn’t a real common name…but if you are related to my DH…..then you know about “grandpa with the whiskers”…..if you know about him you are related to my DH!!! Let me know


      • Anne says:

        I don’t know about “grandpa with the whiskers”. So then I guess we are not directly related. The Langseth name is found in a few different areas in Norway, North of the capital Oslo, and in the countryside not far from the mid country city Trondheim (which my family comes from).
