Apple Cake / Thanksgiving 2013

This recipe was first published in 1973 by Jean Hewitt, former Home Economist at the New York Times.

The Tube pan is perfect for this cake. It maximizes the crust surface area and creates height.

Grease a Tube Pan ( I use my Pan Release Recipe on the blog under Tips, Hints and More)
I refer to this Pan Release often. It's the only mix I use to grease any sweet recipes I bake.

3 C flour
1 1/2 C vegetable oil
1 C granulated sugar
1 C brown sugar
3 eggs
1 tsp salt
1 tsp
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp vanilla
3 apples ( I prefer Jonagold  or Granny Smith, Honey Crips), peeled, cored and sliced
1 C coarsely chopped walnuts
1 C raisins ( can be soaked in Irish Whiskey as an option) Just enough to cover them, let them sit overnight, drain and drink the whiskey in a cup of coffee!

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In the bowl of a stand mixer, with a paddle attachment:
Beat for 5 minutes

Add eggs and continue to mix until creamy

In a separate bowl, whisk:
baking soda
Add to batter

Mix well just until combined

Pour batter into prepared pan
Bake for 1 hour 15 minutes
Cool before serving
Dust with confectioner's sugar to serve.

Peace in the Kitchen!
