Edith’s Passover Apple Cake

Moist & tender, this apple cake is very good. A perfect dessert for any day during the week of Passover

My sister Edith makes this cake every year & I got the recipe from her.  i do not know where she got it from, a friend maybe so I can not give credit to the author of the recipe…. sorry

.I have not made this cake before but I think I will remember to make it again for sure. It is easy to make & I bet it is foolproof! Not like a sponge cake :))  ( my sponge cake fell this year so not sure how I am going to serve it but I will not blog it!!)

The original recipe is for an 8×8 pan. I doubled it & baked it in a springform pan so that I would have a bigger dessert to serve for guests. If i was going tp make it for Murray & I, I will make a smaller one

Here is the recipe.

Ingredients. ( the amount of ingredients listed is for a springtime pan)


6 eggs

1 1/2 cups sugar

2/3 cups oil

1 1/2 cups cake meal

5 apples, peeled & sliced

Topping Note: I did not increase the amount of topping for the bigger recipe

1/3 cup chipped walnuts

1/2 cup sugar

2 tsp cinnamon


Preheat oven to 350f

Grease a springform pan

  1. Beat the eggs with the sugar & oil until the mixture is nice & light
  2. Add the cake meal & mix well
  3. Pour 1/2 of the batter into the prepared springform pan
  4. Now put 1/2 of the sliced apples evenly on the batter. keep them as flat as you can
  5. Pour the remaining batter on top of the apples
  6. Put the balance of the sliced apples evenly on top of the last layer of batter. Set aside
  7. Make the topping:  Mix the chopped nuts, sugar & cinnamon together
  8. Sprinkle the topping evenly all over the apples
  9. Bake in the preheated oven for 1 1/2 hours
  10. Let cool on a cooking rack. Run a knife along the edge of the pan to remove the collar of the pan…

Many people ask me "how did you do that?" "will you show me how?' So I decided to make a blog about what I cook and bake. I am in no way a professional cook, but I love to feed people and try new things as well as making the "old foods" My friends are wonderful cooks, each with their own 'specialty' and i will be having guest cooks here, showcasing their favourite things to cook as well!! I hope you enjoy this blog and maybe decide to make some of these foods yourself! I am always available to answer any questions you might have about anything you see here. Some of my recipes are unique to me but most are not. They are all recipes I have found in a variety of ways, some are old family recipes that date back decades and some are new ones!
