This is one of my most favorite desserts ever! It's easy to make and never lasts long. As a matter of fact, the first time I made it was for a family reunion. It never made it to the reunion! I had to make a second one.
Black Walnut Apple Cake with Lemon Butter
4 cups raw apples, chopped coarsely
2 cups sugar
3/4 cup oil
2 tsp vanilla
2 cups sifted flour
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1 cup chopped black walnuts
3 cups powdered sugar
4 tbsp butter
2 1/2 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp water
Combine apples and sugar and allow to stand while preparing other ingredients. Beat eggs with oil and vanilla. Sift flour, cinnamon, and nutmeg together. Stir into the egg mixture. Add apple/sugar mixture and walnuts.
Pour into a greased and floured 9 x 13 inch pan. Bake at 350 degrees for an hour. When cool, cover with lemon butter icing.
Mix all ingredients well. If too thick, add an additional tablespoon of water. Frost the cake and enjoy.
Enjoy and happy Friday!
