Right now my oven timer shows 58 minutes of baking left. 
As soon as this is finished and cooled off I'm taking it to school kids at church so I left out walnuts.
So many of the kids won't eat a nut.  I think that's sad.

Now I gotta find something I can dump the cake into.  If I put it on a nice plate I'll never see it again.

Gale - I did peel and core the apples.  Oh, I had Gala apples instead of Delicious.  I hope that's OK.
It's sure too late to change.

My cake is out of the oven, finished with cooling on a rack for 30 minutes.  It's cooled on a plate a bit so I sprinkled on some powdered sugar.  It will be finished cooling at noon.  I plan on taking this to church at noon!! but I want to taste it.  I'm going to just go ahead and slice off a big chunk for me.
It's very, very pretty and smells wonderful

1 PM here --- cake is baked, cooled and taken to school.  The kids all LOVED it.  It was a big hit and I wish I had made two of those things.

One problem ... the high school girls want a cooking class.  They all, and a couple young men, want to learn how to make cookies and (their words) fancy cakes.  
Thanks Gale - many thanks

Hi Nancy,I'm glad the kids liked it.What do you think of it? I've made three since last weekend,this guys here just gobble them up.Are you going to show them how to make cookies? That would be funSmileHave the older kids do the baking and the younger kids decorate them.

I liked the cake A LOT!  But I still keep the banana, pineapple, nut and coconut as my very favorite. 

Having a cooking, or any kind of class, in the school would be a big, careful step. 
The small children would not be allowed in any way - just the high schoolers and anything I was
going to do would be checked first.   And each minute of school is already taken.  Working in a "cooking"
class or entertainment would take some time.  All the kids were bellowing for it.
A teacher there today has had the pineapple-banana cake and she carefully whispered to me that she liked
that more.   Another teacher said she would appreciate a carrot cake. 
It was a fun time.  Getting there on their lunch time was great.

I'm so happy that the apple cake turned out well for you.It really is a matter of personal taste.I have made carrot cakes in the past,I have to go through my recipes and find it.The frosting recipe for the pineapple banana nut cake would be fantastic on a carrot cake,cream cheese frosting is almost always used on a carrot cake but the half butter half cream cheese will only make it better.I think the recipe that I have for carrot cake has pineapple in it also.I'll look for it.

Hi Fran,you could leave the nuts out,my friend is allergic to nuts and I do that with all my recipes if she will be having some of whatever I bake.I have never frozen any cake other than zuchinni bread when I baked about 30 loaves lol.My husband and boys never leave a cake alone long enough for it to last more than a couple of days.They are bad bad bad!I'm making an apple cake this weekend and I will freeze a piece and see how it holds up.I'll let you know.The only thing I'm concerned with is the sugar and cinnamon crunch coating on the outside of the cake.

Fran - I left out the nuts for the Apple Cake.  Half the kids at school don't like nuts.
I'd love to have them taste the pineapple banana cake and IMHO it needs nuts.
So, after the holidays I'm going to make two pineapple banana cake - one with nuts, one without.
A group that size needs two cakes anyhow.

And, yes I freeze the pineapple banana cake made into cupcakes with no frosting.  I
I thought I could pull , let's say 6, from the freezer and frost those to take to someone.
However the very top layer of the cupcakes is almost "wet" when I take them from the
freezer.  The taste is still fantastic but they are too soggy to frost.
Makes me no difference - I love having them in the freezer so I can grab one
anytime I want.  Pure luxury.

Ok that's it.  I happen to have a bag of Granny Smith and Red Delicious.  I think the combination will be made into a cake this weekend.

Sounds like fun!  LOL

Yes, Nancy, please let us know how it turns out.  This sounds like a great recipe, thanks Gale.

H.M. - I had a ball making the Apple Cake and it turned out SO PRETTY.  And it was delicious.  The kids and the adults at school just pitched a fit over it.  What fun to take such a treat to happy children.
Like I said - the Apple Cake was wonderful but I do like the pineapple-banana cake more.  The kids thought the cake was a treat.  I think having such recipes is a TREASURE.

Gale, I will look for your post about the freezer test (& keep my fingers crossed that it will work)
Nancy, I like the cupcake idea, I might try making mini loaves instead & I think the recipe is rich enough to be eaten without frosting(maybe a little dusting of powdered sugar right before serving????)

As for leaving out the walnuts, they are my weakness, when I make cookies for hubby, I make a few for me with extra nuts. If the apple cake can be frozen, I will make 2 (one with & one without)

I always put extra nuts in some of my cookies for me as hubby doesn't care for a lot of them.  When I make brownies, half the pan has nuts and his half doesn't.  I MUST have nuts

The nice thing about apple cake is it doesn't need frosting.  Also I never peel my apples.

Freezer test???  What did I miss?  This Mozilla Foxfire which is the only place I can get in, is not the best.  It is very slow and sometimes I wonder if my stuff goes through.  I keep getting weird boxes coming up.  However it is better than internet explorer which gives me gooey all the time.

My mother's apple cake was simple - her "throw together" cake with sliced apples on top and a cinnamon sugar mixture sprinkled over the top and then baked.

Her "throw together" cake was a simple, plain cake that she threw together.  She had made the cake so many times that she didn't need a recipe, it was in her head.  I guess she had to use measuring cups for the flour and sugar, but when it came to the shortening, she didn't use a measuring cup, just her eyes.  She'd just scoop out the shortening and eyeball it.  The cake turned out perfect every time.

Judy - I made a batch of pineapple-banana-coconut-pecan  (did I leave anything out?!?) cupcakes and put them unfrosted into heavy zipper bachgs tossed into the freezer.   I had planned on pulling out a few, frosting them and giving to a friend.  Out of the freezer they are very, very delicious but the top layer is WET -- just too wet to frost.
So, I (hee hee) wouldn't consider giving them away.  I'm eating the entire huge* batch all by myself.

* Huge batch is correct.  Now I can't remember how many cupcakes that recipe makes but it's a lot more than 24.

As I type there's a 9x13 carrot cake in my oven.  I have the cream cheese and butter setting out getting to room temp for frosting.

All right all you VBB's. all this talk about apple cake makes me want to
make one this weekend too!!  This is bad for my diet!! I have to go
shopping on Sat. so maybe if I walk enough I could have 1 piece of
apple cake.  lol lol  I am going to Sprouts and getting the bulk almonds
for $2.99 a pound. It's a 3 day sale. They have never had such a good
sale on almonds.  Now I can make some spiced almonds.  Also have
to get another black ink cartridge for the printer because I print so many
recipes from this site.  lol lol
