Fresh Apple Cake

This is a wonderful apple cake recipe that my grandmother use to make that she got from her friend, Georgie in the 1960's. I ate the things for years not knowing what was exactly in it - it was just grandma's good eats. Then about ten years ago I asked for the recipe -WOW! I'm not much of an oil and sugar user in recipes and this one floored me. It isn't low anything but it is the best fresh apple cake I have ever eaten. It has a nice semi-crispy outer crust. Perfect with a cup of coffee or tea  for breakfast, Thanksgiving or Christmas. Remember the batter will be thick and you will be tempted to add some type of liquid, but don't , just put it in the pan and bake it. You definitely will not be disappointed with this one.

Fresh Apple Cake

1 1/2 cups canola oil
2 cups sugar
3 cups peeled, cored, diced apples
3 cups flour
2 eggs, well beaten
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
1 cup chopped walnuts
Grease and flour an angel food pan, don't use cooking spray stuff - it will not work with this recipe. Beat eggs, add sugar, vanilla, and oil in a small bowl and set aside.  In  a large bowl sift the flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon together. Combine the dry and wet ingredients by hand . Add the apples and walnuts, mix well.  Bake at 350 degrees for 1 1/2 hours. Let it cool completely before removing from the pan or it will crumble apart. This keeps well simply wrap it in aluminium foil.
