Mississippi Apple Cake: The South’s Best Kept Secret!

Are you in the mood for a down-on-the-farm country cake? Well, look no further because this Apple cake is straight from the south and tastes absolutely amazing. I couldn’t believe how easy this Mississippi apple cake was to make. It didn’t take me long at all to toss the ingredients together, get them into a cake pan, and bake them. My entire house filled with the aroma of sweet apples and cake. Yum! I served each slice with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

My kids were super excited to come home from school and have this apple cake as a snack. There is minimal sugar in the cake as the apples act as a natural sweetener so that was good! I don’t want to give the kiddos to much sugar directly before dinner.

Now, this cake recipe calls for 2 sticks of margarine and I know many of you do not like using this product. I hear ya! I don’t enjoy cooking with liquid plastic either. So, you can substitute with 2 sticks of butter. I did and the cake turned out fine. Enjoy!

Quick Tip: This cake makes quite a large dessert so feel free to cut the recipe in half if you need too.



It has too much sugar 1 1/2 cups would do.
Also you can replace some of the sugar with apple sauce . I did not have enough apples & that’s what i used. With using 2 cups of sugar, the first taste came to me was sugar.
