Here is a recipe that came from the Ladies’ Home Journal.  It’s a great way to use up apples.  I have made this as a cake, a loaf and also as muffins.


3 cups all purpose flour

3 teaspoons ground cinnamon

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon salt

1 cup unsalted butter, softened

1/4 cup vegetable oil

2 cups sugar

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

3 large eggs

1/2 pound apples (3 large), peeled and diced into 1/2 inch pieces

1 tablespoon turbinado sugar (such as sugar in the raw or brown sugar)

1 cup confectioners’ sugar

5 teaspoons milk

Heat oven to 325 degrees F.  Grease a 10-inch tube or bundt pan, dust lightly with flour, tap our excess, set aside.  In a bowl, whisk together flour, 2 teaspoons cinnamon, baking soda and salt; set side.  With an electric mixer, cream together butter, oil, sugar and vanilla until ight and fliffy, about 2 minutes.  Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each adddition.  Working in two batched, incorporate dry ingredients into butter mixture.  Fold in apples.

Spoon batter into the prepared pan.  Combine remaining one teaspoon cinnamon and turbinado sugar and sprinkle over cake.  Bake until top is golden and a tester inserted comes out clean, about one hour and ten minutes.  Allow cake to cool in pan for 15 minutes before transferring to a plate, right side up; allow to cool completely.  Whisk last two ingredients together in a bowl to make icing and drizzle over cake.  Serves 16.
