Colonial Apple Cake

This is a really great, and easy, bundt cake recipe.  It is actually the cake we used as our groom's cake in our wedding.  We had a fall wedding and it was fitting for our fall themed reception.  I had made mine for work so when I thought of taking the picture of it I had already had it wrapped in plastic wrap.  Oh well, at least I remembered to take a picture of it.  Also, the original recipe called for 1/2 c chopped dates and 1t of lemon peel that I usually end up leaving out.  I have also substituted some of the oil with applesauce to cut down on some of the fat and calories.

Colonial Apple Cake

2 3/4c AP flour
1t baking powder
1t cinnamon
3/4 t salt
1/2t baking soda
1 3/4c sugar
1c oil
2 eggs
1/4 milk
1t vanilla
2c chopped, peeled Granny smith apple
powdered sugar

Mix flour, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, and baking soda in a medium bowl and set aside.  In a large bowl, combine sugar, oil, eggs, milk, and vanilla.  Beat until blended, scraping the bowl down.  Add dry ingredients and beat 2 more mins, scraping the bowl down frequently.  Stir in apple and pour into a greased and floured pan.  Bake at 350 for 1 hr to 1 hr and 15 mins or until a toothpick in the center comes out clean.  Let stand 10 mins and invert onto a serving plate.  Once cooled, sprinkle with powdered sugar.
