German Apple Cake

This is a very simple, quick-to-make cake that’s helpful for work parties and potlucks.

4 cups peeled, diced apples (about 4 large)
2 cups sugar
1 cup canola or vegetable oil
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 cup chopped nuts (walnuts or pecans work well)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Grease and flour a 9×13 pan and set aside.

In a mixing bowl, combine the sugar, oil, eggs and vanilla. Add the flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon and mix well. Stir in the apples and nuts by hand. The batter will be very thick.

Spoon the batter into the pan, smooth the top with the spoon and bake at 350 degrees for 50 to 55 minutes.
