Cinnamon Apple Cake Recipe

After sampling this cake at a picnic, I had to find the lady who made it to ask for the recipe. I've made it - and shared the recipe myself - many times since.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 35 min. YIELD:16-20 servings


  • 2 cups sugar

  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup flaked coconut
  • 1/3 cup chopped walnuts


  • 1. In a large bowl, beat sugar, oil, eggs and vanilla until well blended. In another bowl, whisk flour, cinnamon, baking soda and salt; gradually beat into sugar mixture (batter will be thick). Fold in apples. Spread into a greased and floured 13-in. x 9-in. baking pan.
