One bowl Apple Cake

I have made these a couple of times and the recipe is definitely worth sharing! I hope you enjoy because this cake is sure tasty and easy to make!

Recipe found from here.


  • 2 cups finely diced, peeled and cored apples
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 cup flour


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Into large bowl add diced apples and sugar. Let stand for about 15 minutes.
  • Pour in oil and egg. Stir.
  • Add dry ingredients. Stir.
  • Add vanilla and walnuts. Stir. It will be quite stiff, don’t worry.
  • Pour into a well greased and floured 8 inch square pan. Bake for 45 minutes @ 350 degrees.
  • Cool in pan for 10 minutes on a cake rack.
  • Dust top with confectioners sugar before serving.

My only variations are:
-I always double the recipe (otherwise, we have to make it again the next day).
-We omit nuts…my kids don’t appreciate them the way I do.
-I only peel the apples if there’s time. No one seems to care either way.

Super Sib!

Emily took a sibling class this past Saturday. It was pretty cute. They used a puppet, named Molly, to talk about having a sibling. Emily is still talking about “my friend Molly”. They talked about why babies cry and what it means to be a big sister among other things. Emily got to tour the “Mom and Me” wing and see a baby in the nursery. I am not delivering at that hospital but they are pretty much the same so she will have an idea of what to expect when she comes to visit after Zachary is born. It was a pretty neat class. The kids got to take home a backpack with a book, coloring pages and a cd.
