I definitely live in the age of Pinterest and have more recipes pinned than I could ever hope to try. But sometimes tried and true is better than new. This apple cake recipe has been in my family for generations. (Perhaps someone reading this will be able to tell me where it came from.) Either way, it’s really simple and always turns out perfectly. I’m sure you and your family will enjoy it as much as mine has over the years.
1 ½ cup vegetable oil
2 cups sugar
2 well beaten eggs
3 cups fresh apples – peeled and chopped (about 3 apples)
3 cups of sifted flour
½ teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 cup chopped pecans (optional)
Mix in order given. Pour into a greased and floured 9×13 pan. Bake 1 hour at 350° Fahrenheit. Allow to cool before slicing.
