Time to Bake: Kentucky Apple Cake Recipe


2 big ‘ol eggs

A sprinkle of cinnamon magic (2 tsp)

1/4 cup buttermilk

A splash of milk (2-3 tbsp)

2 cups sugar

A bit of real vanilla extract (1 tsp)

2 sticks of margarine

The usuals: 2 tsp baking powder, 1/4 tsp baking soda, 1/8 tsp salt

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

3 cups finely chopped apples (The juicier, the better!)

1 tbsp light corn syrup

2 cups chopped walnuts (For that crunch!)

For the shiny glaze:

1/2 cup margarine

1 tsp baking soda

3/4 cup sugar

1/4 cup real vanilla extract

Let’s get baking:

Heat things up – set your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a 9×13-inch pan like you mean it.

Eggs first! Beat them and mix in cinnamon, buttermilk, milk, and vanilla.

Time for the dry squad: sift sugar, baking powder, and baking soda. Add to the egg mix.

Melt margarine and pour into your mix.

Slowly introduce flour to the mix. Combine well!

Apple time! Add apples, salt, corn syrup, and walnuts. Give it a good stir.

Pour it into your pan, spread it out, and bake for 45-50 mins.

Glaze time: melt margarine, then add baking soda, sugar, and vanilla. Keep stirring till the sugar’s all melted in.

When your cake’s done, drizzle that glaze all over it while it’s hot.

Let it cool, slice, and relish every bite!

Quick tip: Store it in an airtight container, and it’ll stay fresh for days (if it lasts that long, that is ).

There you have it! Cozy up with a slice, and let the taste of Kentucky take you on a sweet journey. Happy baking and even happier eating!
