Oktoberfest Recipe

{ Photo taken in Bavaria on our recent visit to Germany }

Inspired by a recent trip to Germany, I decided to share a recipe for an Apple Cake that turned out delicious. Supposedly this is traditional for Germany, but you know how we all like to change a thing or two...

{ Apple Cake }

2 Eggs
1 Cup vegetable oil
2 Cups white sugar
3 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 Cups all purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
4 1/2 Cups Granny Smith apples- peeled, cored, diced

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease bundt pan.
2. Toss diced apples in a little cinnamon; set aside.
3. In a large bowl (or stand up mixer) beat eggs and oil till creamy.
Add the sugar & vanilla; mix well.

4. Combine flour, salt, baking soda, and ground cinnamon together in a bowl.
5. Slowly add flour mixture to oil mixture until well blended.
6. Fold in the apples. **Batter will be thick**
7. Bake at 350 for 50 minutes. Test with a toothpick.
8. When cool, sprinkle with powdered sugar or top with a glaze.

Tip: Let it cool completely on the stove. After cool, take a butter knife and slide around all edges- careful not to cut into cake.
Then put in fridge overnight. Next day, take out of fridge- flip upside down on platter. Should fall out very easily!
