Total time
Using melted and cooled butter-flavored Crisco instead of plain oil gives the cake a slight buttery undertone, making it a great addition to an already delicious cake.
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup butter-flavored Crisco, melted and cooled
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 cups flour
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 4 cups grated apples
  • 4 tsp cinnamon
  • 4 Tbsp brown sugar
  • Powdered sugar
  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Grease and flour a bundt pan.
  3. Beat eggs until yellow.
  4. Add sugar, butter-flavored Crisco and vanilla. Mix until well creamed.
  5. Add flour, baking powder, and salt. Mix until well combined.
  6. Then, stir in grated apples until blended throughout.
  7. In a small bowl, combine cinnamon and brown sugar. Set aside.
  8. Next, pour half of the batter into the bundt pan.
  9. Then, sprinkle half of the cinnamon mixture over batter.
  10. Run a knife or spoon through the cinnamon mixture and batter to create swirls.
  11. Repeat with remaining batter and cinnamon mixture, making sure to only fill bundt pan ⅔ full.
  12. Bake at 350 degrees for 50-60 minutes. 55 minutes in my oven is just right.
  13. Cake is done when a toothpick comes out clean when inserted in the center of the cake.
  14. Remove from oven and cool cake completely.
  15. Run knife along sides of pan and turn out onto a large round plate or cake stand.
  16. Dust with powdered sugar.
  17. Enjoy!
