Moist And Delicious Jewish Apple Cake

I’m feeling the crunch of preparing for a yard sale today.   So I’m pulling out one of my favorite coffee cake recipes and wishing I had piece (or two)  to prolong my procrastination go with my coffee ! 

This scrumptiously moist cake is the perfect way to use up all those apples that the fall brings! My whole family loves it, and it packs well in lunches for a special treat. It's also a big hit when I share it with our Sunday School class for refreshments/donut time! So pick up some apples today and give it a try!


  • 3 cups flour
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup Mazola oil
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 2 1/2 tsp. vanilla
  • 3 tsp. baking powder
  • 4 eggs

Beat all ingredients together for 5 minutes on high speed.
In separate bowl, put 4-6 peeled and sliced apples. Make the apple pieces fairly small. Add 5 tablespoons of sugar and 2 tablespoons of Cinnamon. Turn to coat.

Alternate batter with apples and bake at 350 degrees for about 75-90 minutes.  Adjust the time depending on what type pan you use. I used a 13 x 9 glass cake pan and it didn't seem to need the full 90 minutes. Don't over-cook!

Tip:  It's not in the recipe, but I like to dot the top with butter, and sprinkle with Cinnamon and Sugar before I bake. It gives the top a sweet and kind of crispy coating.

Beware!  This is a stick to your hips kind of cake!
