Grandma's Apple Cake ~ Torta di Mele della Nonna


This is Jason's Grandma's apple cake recipe - now, to set the record straight she was not Italian, but she did pass on this fantastic, no-fail, super moist apple cake recipe!


Grandma's Apple Cake 

Torta di Mele della Nonna


3 cups flour

1 cup oil

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 1/2 teaspoon vanilla

5-6 apples, thinly sliced

1 1/4 cups sugar

4 eggs

1/3 cup orange juice

3 teaspoon baking powder

2 teaspoons cinnamon



In a large bowl, mix together all the ingredients except apples, beat until smooth.


In another bowl, mix sliced apples with cinnamon and 2 tablespoons of sugar.


In  greased 10 inch tube pan, make layers of batter 1/3 at a time, then a layer of apples.  Ending with apples on top.


Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour 15 minutes until a pick comes out clean.


In loving memory of Grandma & Grandpa~

 This is how I will always remember Grandma, in/near the kitchen, hands on her hips,  yelling at us, "Oh who needs it?!"
