Classic Apple cake

I love this easy to make yet beautifully presented dessert. I make it almost every Shabbat when we have guests.

Yields: 1 24-inch cake

Notes: This pairs well with a classic fruity wine or a cup of coffee. You can play around and add any other fruit to it. In the cake pictured, I added fresh raspberries. 



5 medium apples, peeled and cubed into small pieces 

4 eggs

1 C of sugar

¾ C oil 

2 C flour

2 t baking powder

1 t cinnamon

Flaked almonds (optional)



  1. Preheat your oven to ? Line a 24-inch baking dish with parchment paper. 
  2. Place cubed apples in a bowl and sprinkle with 2 tablespoons of sugar.

  3. In a separate bowl, whisk the eggs.

  4. In a third bowl mix flour, baking powder and cinnamon together. Then add oil and whisked eggs. Mix well and then fold in the chopped apples. Batter will be slightly heavy.

  5. Pour into a lined baking dish. If desired, sprinkle almond flakes on top.

  6. Bake for about 40/50 minutes. When cake cools sprinkle some powdered sugar on it, if desired.
