Made this cake for the Pot Luck Dinner at work the other day, and it was a huge hit.  Not too sweet, not too dull, just the right amount of everything to hit that itch for something nummy.  The recipe made a pretty large cake, which was just the right amount for about 15 women to eat off of, but it might be a little much for a small group.


  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 1/4 cups cooking oil (canola oil)
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 3 cups Granny Smith apples, diced
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 cup pecans, chopped

Mix together sugar, oil, eggs, and vanilla.  Add the apples.  Mix together soda, salt, cinnamon, flour and nuts; then add to apple mixture.  This is a very stiff batter.  Spread in a 13×9 inch pan or Bundt pan.  (I put mine in two 10 inch rounds)  Bake at 375 degrees for 35 to 45 minutes; a little longer for Bundt pan.  Let cool completely and top with whipped cream and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.
