My cousin Julia shared this fabulous apple cake with me. It is unbelievably simple to make; can be pulled together in no time and without an electric mixer. Chunks of apple are blended in a cinnamon vanilla batter. As it bakes, the aroma in the house is irresistible.
Just grab your cup of tea with this cake sit back and enjoy this beautiful autumn weather.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Generously butter an 9×11 baking pan.
In a large bowl, beat the eggs and sugar with a whisk until they well combined. Whisk in the melted cooled butter and vanilla.
Whisk in buttermilk and sour cream.
Whisk in the flour mixture and mix well so that you have a smooth batter.
Bake for 55 to 60 minutes, or until the top of the cake is golden brown or until a toothpick is inserted and comes out clean.
Transfer to a cooling rack and let rest for 10 minutes.
Carefully run a knife around the edges of the cake and remove the cake from the pan.
Dust with confectioners’ sugar before serving.
