A traditional Jewish dessert recipe, my Ema Ljuba would frequently make this apple cake on Friday for Shabbat, and it would stay moist all week long. A parev (kosher) dessert, this cake can be eaten with either meat or dairy. A huge family favorite among all of Ljuba’s seven children and many grandchildren.

Importance of Eggs:

Eggs are a nutritional powerhouse, with one egg containing 6 grams of high-quality protein and 8 essential nutrients, all for 70 calories. Plus, eggs are naturally free of sugars and carbohydrates.

Step 1

To make the apple cake, start by peeling and thinly slicing your apples. I like to use Granny Smiths for my apple cake.

Step 2

Then put your apple slices in a large bowl, sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon, then toss until evenly coated.

Step 3

In another large bowl, pour in your flour. Then stir in the salt and baking powder.

Step 4

Finish by mixing in the remaining sugar, and set this bowl aside.

Step 5

Next, measure out your canola oil in a large measuring cup. Then, add four large eggs and vanilla extract.

Step 6

Finish off your wet ingredients with orange juice and whisk it all together.

Step 7

Slowly mix your wet ingredients into the dry ingredients creating a very thick dough-like batter.

Next, assemble your cake! Bake at 375 for a little over an hour.

Step 8

Your fork is waiting.
