Buttermilk Apple Cake

Autumn is here and I love all things apple and cinnamon. I made a few amendments to this recipe and it turns out delicious! Forgive the photo of apples. The cake went too fast to be photographed!


3⁄4 cup brown sugar, firmly packed + 2tbsps for sprinkling
1 tsp cinnamon
1⁄3 cup oil
1 egg, slightly beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1⁄2 cups flour
1⁄2 teaspoon baking soda
1⁄4 teaspoon salt
2 cups apple, peeled & chopped


Preheat oven to 325°.

Grease a 9″ sq. pan.

Sprinkle one cup of apple on the bottom of the pan. Sprinkle the 2 tbsp of brown sugar and 1 tsp of cinnamon onto the apples.

Blend 3/4 cup brown sugar, oil, egg & vanilla in large bowl.

Combine flour, baking soda & salt. Add to wet mixture. Add the remaining cup of apple and the buttermilk. Mix thoroughly just to moisten.

Spread mixture into greased pan on top of the apples.

Bake cake at 325° for 30 to 35 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
