Mr. B's Apple Pies and Cake

Hi Dear Folk,

Mr. B. should have been a baker, his speciality being chocolate chip cookies, but he's a whizz with apples too.

Apple Custard

Apple Crumble Pie

Jewish Apple Cake

One write up I read about the Jewish Apple Cake said that it was very popular in Pennsylvania and especially Philadephia, which I didn't realize.  This is my absolutely go to cake.  

I call it my 4,3,2,1 recipe.  4 eggs, 3 cups flour, 2 cups sugar, 1 cup oil, 3 teaspoons baking powder, 2 teaspoons vanilla extract, 1/4 cup of orange juice, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, add everything into a bowl and mix.  That is what makes this cake so easy.  It is a dense batter.

For the two layers of apple, three sliced apples tossed in 5 teaspoons of sugar and 3 teaspoons cinnamon add more cinnamon or sugar to your taste. 

Pour one third of the mixture into an oiled and floured bundt pan, layer of apples, layer of batter, layer of apples, layer of batter.  If any apples are left over put on top.

Cook in a 350 f oven for 65 minutes.  Test.

This is a moist cake and never fails.

  1. They look delicious. Never had apple custard which sounds interesting. I have made your Jewish apple cake a couple of times and it gets eaten very quickly and is simple to make. I think my tin is too big though.
