    Oh, yum. I am hungry for both of these at it is just 8am.

    I will counter with another apple cake that I just made. I cannot ever
    say that it is better than Dorrie's (my grandmother was a Greenspan
    and I always secretly hope that Dorrie and I are long, lost
    relatives), but it is a wonderful cake that is great warm, at room
    temp, or believe it or not, ice cold.

    I have adapted this from a recipe at Smitten Kitten, changing some
    ingredients and technique to suit my fancy.


    Apple cake

    8 apples - use what you like, I haven't bombed yet.
    1 tablespoon cinnamon
    5 tablespoons + 2 tablespoons of brown sugar
    2 3/4 cups flour, sifted
    1 tablespoon baking powder
    1 teaspoon salt
    1 cup vegetable oil
    2 cups sugar (white this time)
    1/4 cup orange juice
    Grated rind from half an orange
    2 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
    4 eggs
    1 cup chopped pecans

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
    Grease either a tube pan or two loaf pans.

    Peel, core and chop the apples into chunks or slices (your choice
    here). Mix cinnamon and 5 T of brown sugar and coat apple pieces. Set
    this mixture aside while you prepare the batter.

    Mix flour, baking powder and salt in a bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk
    together oil, orange juice, rind, sugar and vanilla. Pour wet
    ingredients into the dry ones, then add eggs. Mix until all
    ingredients are incorporated. No need to beat or go any length of
    time. Just pull it all together so there are no dry ingredients to be
    seen.

    Pour apples into batter, reserving about a cup of them, and gently
    stir them so they are fully coated with batter.

    Pour into prepared pan(s). Spoon remaining apple mixture on top of
    batter. Sprinkle with rest of brown sugar.

    Bake for about around 80-90 minutes, or until a tester comes out
    clean. Timing is similar for tube or loaf pans.
