My boys have been begging me to make a cake, so finally I decided to go with an apple cake so it would be fairly healthy. I used to have a recipe for a really delicious apple cake . . . but I couldn’t find it, so I had to whip up a new one. This isn’t really like the original, but it was still yummy enough that my family ate an entire 9×13 pan in less than a day!
If you’re using regular raisins, I would suggest soaking them in boiling water for five to ten minutes before using . . . they give the cake a little extra juice that way.
Apple Raisin Cake
1 9×13″ pan
1 Tblsp. vanilla extract
1/2 c. margarine
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. allspice
1 c. sugar
2 c. flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1 c. raisins
3 c. apples
Preheat oven to 450º.
Beat eggs, margarine, vanilla and sugar together in a mixing bowl.
Stir in the flour and baking powder until you have a smooth mixture. Add the raisins and apples and mix until evenly distributed.
Spread the mixture in a greased 9×13″ pan and bake for 30 minutes or until firm to the touch and golden brown on top.
We drizzled the cake with icing, which was made with 2 cups icing sugar, just enough milk to make it smooth and a sprinkle of allspice for flavor.Print or share this recipe using the icons above!
