Ellen’s Passover Apple Cake

DSCN2642DSCN2649DSCN2643DSCN2634My friend Ellen who has supplied CWC with some wonderful recipes gave me this recipe last Passover and I baked it and we all totally enjoyed it, but for some reason it never made it on here. I have pictures and everything! . It was light and delicious, and not too difficult at all. Enjoy! and thanks again Ellen for all your support.


6 eggs

2 cups sugar

1 cup vegetable oil

2 cups cake meal ( for Passover)

2 tbs. Potato Starch

salt (a pinch)


Beat eggs, add sugar and beat well. Blend oil, cake meal, starch and salt to eggs. Pour 1/2 the batter into greased 13 x 9 pyrex pan. Then add apple mixture on the top of this. See below.

Apple Mixture:

2 pounds apples , (any kind you like) pared and sliced

1 tsp. cinnamon

1/3 cup sugar

juice of 1/2 lemon or 2 tsp.

Combine ingredients and place on top of batter. Add remaining batter to cover apple mixture ( it will be thick and need spreading)


1 cup ground walnuts or pecans, whichever you prefer

1 tsp. cinnamon

1 cup sugar

combine and sprinkle on top of cake. Bake 350 degrees for 75 minutes.
