Fresh Apple Cake

Fresh Apple Cake

recipe from Mamie DeLoach Williams
my great-aunt, maternal grandmother's sister

Combine in large bowl:

1 1/4 cups salad or corn oil
2 cups sugar
3 eggs, well beaten
1 cup chopped pecans
3 cups fresh chopped apples

In another bowl, sift 3-4 times:

1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. soda
3 cups plain flour

Stir well, add to apple mixture, then add

2 tsp. vanilla

Bake at 325° for 45'.  (The last one I made took 55'.)


1 stick oleo or butter
1 cup light brown sugar

Heat over low flame until melted, then add

1/4 cup can milk

Bring to full boil.  


1 tsp vanilla

Spread over cake.

(I typed this as it was written decades ago.  Additional tips, this recipe is for a 9 x 13 cake pan.  I used honey crisp apples and chopped the pecans to smithareens.  "Can milk"--Carnation evaporated milk.  I also poked holes in the cake so the icing would get down inside the cake.)
