Kids’ Whimsical Cooking: Apple Cake

maggie faith 1st grade photoMy name is Magnolia. I’m Addie’s sister. I am 6 years old. I helped my nana make an Apple Cake.

I like that it smelled good. My favorite smell was the cinnamon. I liked that I could mix it with my hands. I washed them first so they were clean. I licked the bowl clean. It tasted really yummy.

I think this would be a good project for kids to do with their grandmas or their moms or dads.

I hope you like my recipe.



First, peel the apples…

Apple Cake

2 c. flour
2 c. sugar
2 t. cinnamon
1 t. baking soda
1 t. baking powder
1 c. shopped walnuts
1 c. vegetable oil
2 t. vanilla
2 eggs, beaten
1/4 c. brandy
4 c. chopped apples (peeled)

Mix all ingredients and press into a greased 9 x 11 baking dish. Bake at 350 for 1 hour or until center bounces back when touched. Serve with a dollop of fresh whipped cream.

Nana’s Notes: I have offered this recipe before, but it’s worth repeating. It is quite an easy recipe for kids with adult supervision. Magnolia was envious of her sister Addie always being featured in my Kids’ Whimsical Cooking feature, so voila! My little protege.
