Walnut Apple Cake Recipe

I first tasted this delicious cake at a Halloween party and quickly asked for the recipe. It's not too sweet, and the butter sauce makes it a super dessert.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 45 min. YIELD:12-15 servings


  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 4 cups chopped peeled tart apple
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons butter (no substitutes)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Walnut halves, optional


  • 1. In a mixing bowl, combine eggs, sugar, oil and vanilla; mix well. Combine dry ingredients; add to the egg mixture and mix well (batter will be stiff). Stir in apples and walnuts. Spread into a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking pan. Bake at 350° for 45-50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack. For the sauce, combine sugar, milk and butter in a saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat; boil and stir for 2 minutes. Remove from the heat; stir in vanilla. Cut cake into squares; top with warm sauce. Garnish with walnut halves if desired. Yield: 12-15 servings.

"I absolutely love this cake! So moist, and not too sweet or rich- I could eat a whole pan. And the sauce gives it that "milk and cookies" vibe, you have to have one with the other. I shredded the tart apples so there are no surprise chunks :)"

"I baked it for 50 min. and it tested done but was gooey. The flavor of the cake was good but didn't care for the sauce."
