Ann's Apple Cake

There are some recipes that are great to have on hand when friends drop in and there isn't time to bake something complicated. Ann's Apple Cake is a wonderfully easy scratch recipe which provides satisfying results. This cake is moist, comforting and delicious. If you give it a try, we think you will find yourself baking it often.

Apple Cake

3 eggs
1 3/4 cup sugar
1 cup canola oil
2 cups unsifted flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cinnamon
4 - 6 peeled chopped baking apples
1 cup chopped nuts (optional)

Preheat oven to 350.
Sift all dry ingredients together and set aside. Blend eggs, sugar, and oil. Stir dry ingredients into egg mixture. Fold in the apples and nuts. Bake in a lightly greased 9 x 13 pan (we made ours in a tube pan) for 1 hour. Let cake cool before turning out onto a platter.

Peeled or unpeeled on the apples? Does it matter?

Oops, yes, peel the apples. Sorry about that omission.

this looks great! I have a bunch of apples in the fridge I'd been trying to decide what to do with. This is so much more interesting than the standard applesauce or baked apples!
