Why I Love This Recipe

Ingredients You'll Need

2 cups sugar
3 eggs
1 12 cups vegetable oil
14 cup orange juice
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
14 tsp. salt
1 Tbsp. cinnamon
1 Tbsp. vanilla
3 cups peeled & finely chopped apples
1 cup shredded coconut
1 cup chopped pecans

1/2 cup butter (1 stick)
1 cup sugar
**1/2 cup buttermilk
12 tsp. baking soda

**Substitute for Buttermilk:
1 cup milk
2 tsp. vinegar
Let sit 5-10 minutes


Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Generously grease a tube pan.

For the cake: in a large bowl, combine the sugar, eggs, oil, orange juice, flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon & vanilla extract; & mix well.

Fold apples, coconut, & pecans into batter.

Pour the batter into the prepared pan & bake until a tester comes out clean, about 1 1/2 hours.

Shortly before the cake is done, make the sauce:

Melt the butter in a large saucepan, stir in the sugar, buttermilk, & baking soda, & bring to a good rolling boil, stirring constantly.

Boil for 1 minute.

Pour the sauce over the hot cake in the pan as soon as you remove it from the oven.

Let stand 1 hour, then turn out onto a rack to cool completely.
