DEE MARSZALEK'S APPLE CAKE

Ingredients:

1 3/4 cups sugar

3 eggs

2 cups flour

1 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

1 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp vanilla

1 cup oil (veg or extra lite olive)

1 cup chopped nuts

5 apples, pared, cut into chunks

Directions:

Beat sugar and eggs until well mixed. Add vanilla and mix well. Sift flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon into sugar-egg mixture. Mix well. Add 1 cup of oil and mix well. Add nuts and apple chunks. Batter will be very thick. (I find adding one apple at a time is easier). Spoon into 9x13 pan (greased lightly). Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour.

Note: You will be able to use a mixer for most mixing, but you will have to mix by hand when adding nuts and apples.
