Ingredients

  • 3 cups sugar, divided
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 3 cups apples, peeled and finely chopped
  • 1 cup shredded coconut
  • 1 cup pecans, chopped
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk

Preparation

Preheat the oven to 325°. Generously grease a tube pan.

 

For the cake: in a large bowl, combine 2 cups sugar, eggs, oil, orange juice, flour, 1 teaspoon baking soda, salt, cinnamon and vanilla extract; and mix well. Fold apples, coconut and pecans into batter.

 

Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake until a tester comes out clean, about 1 1/2 hours.

 

Shortly before the cake is done, make the sauce: Melt the butter in a large saucepan, stir in 1 cup sugar, buttermilk and 1/2 teaspoon baking soda, and bring to a good rolling boil, stirring constantly. Boil for 1 minute. Pour the sauce over the hot cake in the pan as soon as you remove it from the oven. Let stand 1 hour, then turn out onto a rack to cool completely.

Oh MY!! This is

Oh MY!! This is the best apple cake ever. I did change one thing. Instead of the oil, I used 1 cup of unsalted butter and 1/2 cup applesauce. This cake is so moist and tender. You can't go wrong with a recipe from Paula. Becky Ashand, Ohio.
