Apple Cake

My husband, Jeff's, most favorite cake in the whole, wide world, is the Apple cake recipe his mother so generously passed down to me.   One of his co-workers gave us a bag of apples recently from his orchard in Leona Valley, so I decided to mark off an item on my to do list this morning, surprise my husband (and his employees), and pass along this recipe to you. Enjoy!


Bonnie's Apple Cake


3 eggs

dash salt

1 3/4 cup sugar

1 cup oil

2 cups flour

1tsp baking soda

1tsp cinnamon

1 tsp vanilla

4-5 granny smith apples, peeled, cored, and sliced.

1 cup chopped walnuts


Beat eggs with a fork in a large bowl and add a dash of salt. Mix in sugar and oil. Add flour, baking soda, cinnamon and vanilla and mix well. Blend in apples and walnuts.

Put into a 9X12 pan (you don't need to grease it) and bake at 325 degrees for 1 hour and 15 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.

Note:  When the cake comes out of the oven it will have a delicious crusty top. If you'd like to keep the cake 'crusty', avoid covering it with foil or plastic wrap.
