Ingredients

How to make the Apple Cake Filling

Peel the apples. Nonna likes to leave some of the peel on the apple for a little extra color. Slice the apples and mix with cinnamon and 5 tbsp sugar. Set apart, this will be used later as the filling.

How to make the Apple Cake Batter

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 350° F.
  2. Place the eggs in a bowl and start mixing.
  3. Add the sugar and mix until completely dissolved and the batter becomes fluffy and light yellow.
  4. Add in the orange juice and then the Papa Vince EVOO.
  5. Add the baking powder and a pinch of salt into the flour and add slowly to the mixer, a spoon at a time.  Mix until it resembles a smooth batter.

Grease a pan with butter and then dust with flour. I recommend using a rectangular cake pan about 2 1/2 inches deep.

Add 1/2 of the batter to the pan. Add the prepared apple slices neatly on top of the batter. Pour remaining batter over Apple Cake Filling.

Bake at 350° F for 45-50 min. Do not open the oven during the first 25 min.  After 45 minutes test the cake with a knife, if it comes out clean the cake is ready.  If not put it back in the oven and bake for a further 5 - 10 minutes.
