Apple Bourbon Cake

  • Author: Kathy Fantau


  • 4 large apples, peeled, cored, and chopped
  • 1 cup bourbon
  • 2 cups sugar
  • ½ cup vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups white flour
  • 2 tsp. baking soda
  • 2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. nutmeg (freshly grated if possible)
  • ¼ tsp. ground cloves
  • 1 cup walnuts, chopped


  1. Combine apples and bourbon in a bowl. Cover and let sit, tilting the bowl from time to time to ensure that all apples are soaking in the bourbon.
  2. Preheat oven to 350°, and grease a 9×13 baking pan.
  3. In a large bowl, beat the sugar, oil, and eggs together until well mixed. In a smaller bowl, add the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, salt, nutmeg, and cloves, and stir well with a whisk or fork to combine. Add the dry ingredients to the egg mixture, and mix. Finally, add the nuts and the apple & bourbon mixture, and stir until well mixed.
  4. Pour this batter into your baking pan. Bake for 45 min to 1 hour, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Serve warm or at room temperature with whipped cream or a frosting of your choice. Refrigerate any unused portions.
