I really don’t consider myself much of a baker, but I’m here to tell you I nailed this cake. I mean NAILED it (did you get that?). Today I’m sharing with you what I call The Best Apple Nut Cake.
I really can’t take all the credit for this cake. My mom’s good friend, Sonjia (and mine too!), used to take her a loaf of this cake every year for Christmas when she lived here in NC. Mama enjoyed it so much she asked her for the recipe.
Mama was nice enough to include this recipe in the cookbook she made for me when I moved out on my own. After many failures in the kitchen as a teenager, I asked her to (literally) write the directions that any cooking dummy could understand. It has directions like, “put the lid on the pot”. For real. Thanks, Mama.
This cake is perfectly moist and chock full of fresh apples, pecans and coconut. It MUST be on your fall baking agenda.
