Apple Cake Recipe, mmmmmm!

Fall is apple season!

When I was a kid we would bake Apple Cake using McIntosh apples from the orchard up the street and the house would smell so good!  The recipe is very simple and oh so worth it!

Here is the delicious recipe:

Apple Cake

2/3 c. vegetable oil
1 c. sugar
1 beaten egg
1 tsp. baking soda
1-1/2 c. flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 c. chopped nuts (optional)

2-3 apples, peeled, cored, and coarsely chopped

Grease and flour an 8- or 10-inch square pan
Blend together everything except the apples with a spoon (my recipe says you must use a wooden spoon, but I don't know if that's completely necessary.)  Mix in chopped apples.

Pour into prepared pan.

(If I wanted to double the recipe, I would bake it in an 11x13 pan.)

Bake at 350-degrees for 50 minutes or until done. Test done-ness with a toothpick.


I never put icing or anything else on this cake as it is good enough on it's own.
