Apple Chip Cake

Friday, September 18, 2009

I hardly make dessert these days, but this is a fall favorite that I try to do once a year in September.

Barb's Apple Chip Cake
1 1/4 cup oil
2 cups sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. baking soda
3 cups flour
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup chopped nuts
3 cups peeled and chopped apples (hence the name, "apple chip")
Preheat the oven to 350.  In a bowl mix oil, sugar and eggs.  Beat until smooth. Sift flour, salt, baking soda and cinnamon and beat into wet ingredients to form a still batter. Add vanilla, nuts and apples.  Stir to blend. Spoon batter into a 9 x 13 pan.  Bake 1 hour.

Optional Frosting:
Mix 1 cup brown sugar with 4 T. cream. Cook until sugar is melted. Add 1/8 t. salt and 1/2 t. vanilla. Pour over still warm cake.
