German Apple Cake

I found this cake recipe in Taste of Home magazine, and it's one of those yummy, comforting fall desserts.  I served it at one of my workshops the other night, and it was GONE before the evening was over.

By the way, if you need good recipes, I recommend visiting Taste of Home's website:  They have a plethora of recipes in all categories, and you can always find something tasty to make.  Their recipes are very practical for the everyday home cook.

  • In a large bowl, beat the eggs, sugar, oil and vanilla. Combine the flour, cinnamon, baking soda and salt; add to egg mixture and mix well. Fold in apples and nuts. Pour into a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish. Bake at 350° for 55-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack.
  • In a small bowl, beat cream cheese and butter. Add confectioners' sugar, beating until smooth. Spread over cake. Refrigerate leftovers. Yield: 12-16 servings.


  • 3 eggs
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
