Aunt's Apple Cake SRC

Secret Recipe Club

Secret Recipe Club (SRC) time is here. again, for the second group under the capable leadership of Suzanne of Thru the Bugs on my Windshield and April from Angel's Homestead.

The blog, I was assigned is No Reason Needed.  Strangely enough, she had my blog, last month, in another group.  It happens, I was about to bake and happily found this yummy apple cake.  I knew hubby would enjoy it which he did.

This is easy to make and I had all the ingredients on hand.

Aunt's Apple Cake (
adapted from No Reason Needed)


3/4 cup all-purpose flour

3/4 tsp baking powder

4 large apples 

2  eggs

3/4 cup sugar

1 teaspoon rum extract

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

8 tablespoons oil


 Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease and flour a square baking pan.

 Beat oil and eggs until foamy. Add the sugar, flour, cinnamon, baking powder, salt and Rum flavoring; mix well.

Add apples, diced to the size you prefer.  I like chunks . Spoon mixture into prepared baking pan (9x9 square).

 Bake in 350 degree oven for 30 to 40 minutes. Cool cake  for at least, 10 minutes, before removing.

Eat and enjoy.


  1. I love how your cake is filled with such delicious chunks of apples.

  2. this looks like a great fall recipe too when we have too many apples around the house.

  3. Quick and tasty - that's a winning combination.

  4. I'm sorry that this comment is not complimentary, but the pictures of your food always seem to be beige/yellow and even when the recipes seem appetizing, the pictures do not do them justice. Something else that I always notice is your misuse of punctuation marks, especially the comma. You use them way too often and incorrectly most of the time. It diminishes from the professional quality of your blog. These 2 points are really easy to correct and I wish you best of luck.

    1. I did want to respond to you and thank you for your input. It is a shame, you did not sign your name or send this in an email. I might have chosen to ask you advice. Since that was not your choice, please accept my thanks.

  5. Apple pie is a hit wherever you go! Yum.
