At the campground where my husband and I have a trailer, the campers hold an auction of baked goods every Fourth of July. I donated this moist tube pan cake last year and it brought in the highest bid! I often use black walnuts in place of regular walnuts because they add a special flavor.

Ingredients

  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup canola oil
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups shredded peeled tart apples
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
  • 2 tablespoons confectioners' sugar
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, beat the eggs, oil and vanilla. Add apples and sugar; beat for 1 minute. Combine the flour, cinnamon, baking soda, salt, nutmeg and baking powder; add to apple mixture until blended. Stir in walnuts.
  2. Pour into a greased and floured 10-in. fluted tube pan. Bake at 325° for 50-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack to cool completely.
  3. Combine confectioners' sugar and brown sugar; sprinkle over cake.
