Cinnamon Apple Bundt Cake
2 cups flour
2 cups sugar
3 cups peeled apple, shredded
1/2 cup raisins
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
2 tsp baking soda
3 tbsp confectioner’s sugar
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
2. Mix the dry ingredients and apples together in large bowl.
3. Add egg, oil and vanilla and mix well.
4. Pour batter into greased loaf pan. I prefer to use a bundt pan.
4. Bake for about an hour or until a toothpick inserted and removed comes out clean. Remove from pan and cool. Sprinkle with confectioner’s sugar, if desired.
My name is Mike and even though I’m not always a gentleman, it’s safe to say I am in love with food. Like my more famous namesake, the kid on the cereal commercial from the early 80′s, I had an ability to eat just about anything and “like it.”
I’ve become a tad more discerning since my toddler phase: I prefer Pinot Noir to the customary Shiraz my parents liked, I no longer eat parmesan cheese sprinkled from a container, and can pick out which ingredients I like or don’t in a recipe by smell alone. I blame my Lebanese heritage, my large Lebanese nose (all the better for smelling with) and exposure over the past few years to some exquisite ethnic cooking styles and cuisine, as well as to some stunning, inspiring cooks who are family or friends.
I’ve included a lot of their favourite recipes on this site, as well as a few of my own that have become my staples over the years. I hope you find something here that you like.
