Grandgirl’s Fresh Apple Cake from Georgia
Recipe courtesy Paula Deen
For the Cake:
Butter, for greasing pan
2 cups sugar
1 1/2 cups vegetable oil
1/4 cup orange juice
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
3 cups peeled and finely chopped apples
1 cup shredded coconut
1 cup chopped pecans
For the Sauce:
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup buttermilk
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
Preheat the oven to 325 F. Generously grease a tube pan. For the
cake: in a large bowl, combine the sugar, eggs, oil, orange juice, flour,
baking soda, salt, cinnamon and vanilla extract; and mix well. Fold
apples, coconut, and pecans into batter. Pour the batter into the
prepared pan and bake until a tester comes out clean, about 1 1/2 hours.
Shortly before the cake is done, make the sauce: Melt the butter in a
large saucepan, stir in the sugar, buttermilk, and baking soda, and bring
to a good rolling boil, stirring constantly. Boil for 1 minute. Pour the
sauce over the hot cake in the pan as soon as you remove it from the oven.
Let stand 1 hour, then turn out onto a rack to cool completely
