Homemade Apple Cake: A Simple & Delectable Treat











Discover the perfect blend of sweetness and warmth with this Homemade Apple Cake, easy to bake in just 45 minutes. It's a dairy-free delight that brings the cozy flavors of apple and cinnamon right to your table.


Step 1: Prepping the Ingredients

Begin your apple cake adventure by preheating your oven to 350°F. It’s like warming up before exercise; it ensures everything cooks perfectly. In a large bowl, embrace the simplicity of home cooking by mixing the chopped apples, oil, sugar, eggs, and walnuts by hand. This isn't just mixing; it's infusing love and warmth into your cake, one stir at a time. It's a rustic and satisfying process, reminiscent of baking in a cozy, well-loved kitchen.
Pro Tip: Use your hands to mix for a more intimate connection with your food.

Step 2: Combining Dry Ingredients

In a separate sanctuary of another bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, baking soda, salt, vanilla, and cinnamon. This act is akin to preparing the foundation of a house. Each ingredient plays a crucial role, much like the foundation supports what's built upon it. Mixing these dry ingredients separately ensures that the baking soda and salt are evenly distributed, promising a cake that rises beautifully and tastes evenly delicious.
Pro Tip: Sift the flour to avoid lumps for a smoother batter.

Step 3: Creating the Batter

Merge the dry mixture into the apple amalgamation, stirring until just combined to form a thick batter. It's this thickness that encases our apples and walnuts, ensuring every bite is brimming with texture and flavor. The apples will release their natural juices as they bake, contributing to the moistness of the cake. This step is a beautiful reminder of how separate components come together to create something wonderfully cohesive and delicious.
Pro Tip: Don’t overmix to keep the cake tender.

Step 4: Baking to Perfection

Pour the batter into an ungreased 13x9 baking pan, spreading it evenly. This pan is not just a vessel; it's the stage where the magic happens. Slide it into your preheated oven and bake for about one hour. Here’s where patience becomes key. As tempting as it is to peek, keep the oven door closed to allow the cake to rise and brown beautifully. When done, the cake will be a gorgeous golden brown, a testament to your baking prowess. Let it cool slightly in the pan, then serve this hearty, comforting cake to applause from family and friends.
Pro Tip: Insert a toothpick in the center to check for doneness. If it comes out clean, it’s ready.
