Apple cake

I actually prefer a much bigger piece than this!

I’ve tried lots of versions of apple cake, and my favorite by far is still the one my mother makes! RuthAnn Lavin is a terrific cook and baker, and this recipe just can’t be improved upon. You’re welcome to share your recipes with me, but Mom’s is still the best :-)

Apple Cake

3 eggs
1-3/4 c sugar
1 c oil
1 t baking soda
2-1/2 c flour
1 t cinnamon
1/2 t salt
1 t vanilla
1/2 c chopped nuts (I like walnuts)
4 c chopped apples (about 3 medium)

In a large bowl, beat the eggs and sugar together until light. Switch to a wooden spoon and stir in the rest of the ingredients in the order listed. Makes a very thick batter. Grease a 9×13 pan and bake at 350 for 1 hour.
