7 appetizing apple recipes

Indulge in one of these sweet and spicy apple delights!

Just one bite is all it takes to be seduced by crisp, juicy, sweet-tart apple recipes. And when they’re combined with heady spices, flaky pastry and sugary sauces, the flavour explosion seals their fate as the fruit of earthly delights. There’s definitely a reason that apples have been a cooking – and eating – staple for thousands of years. Just ask Adam and Eve.

1 Apple cake recipe

  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • 8 cups peeled, cored and chopped McIntosh apples
  • 2-¾ cups cake and pastry flour, sifted
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ½ cup vegetable oil
  • ½ cup apple sauce
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • ¼ cup orange juice
  • 2 vanilla beans, seeds scraped out, or 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 4 eggs


1 Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease and flour a 9" fluted cake pan; set aside. Stir together the sugar and cinnamon in a large bowl; add the apples and toss to coat. Set aside.

2 In another large bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder and salt. In a smaller bowl, whisk together the oil, apple sauce, sugar, orange juice and vanilla seeds.

3 Pour the wet baking ingredients over the dry and stir to combine (the mixture will be thick). Add the eggs, one at a time, stirring well after each addition. Pour half of the batter into the prepared cake pan. Spread half of the apple mixture over the top.

4 Cover with the remaining batter, then top with the remaining apple mixture. Bake for 1½ hours, or until a toothpick inserted in the centre of the cake comes out clean.

Makes 1 cake.
