Question: What should you do when your kids baked mini black and white cookies, and now you have a container of leftover lemon-flavored glaze in the refrigerator?
Answer: Bake an apple cake, of course…
The cake is adapted from here, and the glaze is adapted from “Spice and Spirit” (aka “the purple cookbook”). Note that this recipe yields more glaze than shown in the picture above. Next time, I would put more glaze on the cake.
- 2 cups sugar
- 1¼ cup canola oil
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 3 cups flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 4 cups chopped apple
Mix sugar and oil. Beat in eggs. Mix in vanilla and dry ingredients. Add apples and mix through.
Pour batter into a baking-paper-lined 9x13 pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 45-60 minutes or until done. Let cool.
Prepare glaze and pour/spread over cake.
