1 9x13-inch cake



  • ¾ cup vegetable oil

  • 2 large eggs

  • 3 cups finely chopped Granny Smith apples

  • 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour

  • 2 cups white sugar

  • 2 teaspoons baking soda

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg

Cream Cheese Frosting:

  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened

  • 1 tablespoon milk, or more as needed

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1 pinch salt

  • 2 ½ cups confectioners' sugar


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F(175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9x13-inch baking pan.

  2. Make the cake: Whisk oil and eggs together in a bowl. Place apples in a separate bowl, and pour oil-egg mixture over top. Let stand while mixing the dry ingredients.

  3. Whisk together flour, sugar, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a separate bowl. Gradually fold flour mixture into apple mixture; mix until batter is thick but well combined. Pour into the prepared pan.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 45 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool completely.

  5. While the cake is cooling, make the frosting: Beat cream cheese, 1 tablespoon milk, vanilla, and salt in a mixing bowl until well combined. Gradually beat in confectioners' sugar, then continue to beat until smooth. Beat in additional milk, if needed, 1 tablespoon at a time, until frosting is desired consistency.

  6. Spread frosting over cooled cake.
