German Apple Cake

Serves 8

This vintage cake has been around a long time and once you taste it, you will see why. It’s so very moist with a nice tender “chew” from the apples, raisins and nuts. Serve for dessert, or as a snack with coffee or cup o’tea. It stands alone nicely, but you can also offer with a dollop of whipped cream or warm applesauce.

German Apple Cake Recipe


  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 4 tablespoons apple pie spice
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 gala apples, cored, seeded and thinly sliced
  • ¾ cup chopped nuts (we used pecans)
  • ½ cup raisins or coconut

Preheat oven to 350.

Beat eggs with oil until fluffy, about 2 minutes.

Combine sugar, flour, soda, salt and spice. Beat in a cup at the time until all has been incorporated into egg mixture. Using spatula, fold in extract, apples, nuts and fruit.

Pour into 9×13” prepared pan. Bake at 350 for about 50-55 minutes.
