Milopita (Greek Apple Cake)
3 extra large eggs or 4 medium to large eggs
2 cups sugar
1 cup vegetable oil (such as canola or corn)
1 Tablespoon Vanilla Extract
1/2 cup orange juice
3 cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1 cup finely ground walnuts
3 cups finely chopped apples
Extra: Powder sugar and Cinnamon for dusting on top of cool cake. Do this generously.
In a stand mixer, mix eggs and sugar, slowly add oil and continue to beat well. Add vanilla and orange juice. Mix to combine all wet ingredients.
In a separate bowl, combine all dry ingredients and whisk lightly to combine well. Slowly add dry ingredients into wet ingredients. Mix well. Add apples and walnuts mix to combine well.
Butter a 9x13 cake pan. Pour batter into pan, spread evenly. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 50 minutes. Test with toothpick. After cake is cooled completely, do a generous dusting of powder sugar then cinnamon.
I slice into diamond shapes. Serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, a dusting of cinnamon on ice cream and a drizzle of orange blossom honey. It's awesome.
Note: In these pics, I went kind of chunky on the nuts. I like a finer ground and recommend you do so.
