This is another family recipe and comes from Grandma Lois, and has been at every family event since I can remember. With a bowl full of apples that needed to be used, I talked to mom and got the recipe and made it. I used three different varieties of apples, and used half whole wheat flour and half all purpose. Turned out moist and sweet. I think a drizzle of caramel sauce will set this off perfectly tonight for dessert.
3 cups flour (1/2 whole wheat can be used)
1 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp soda
1 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
2 cups sugar
1 1/2 cups canola oil
2 eggs beaten
2 tsp vanilla
Throw the apples into the wet ingredients and mix, then dry and then the nuts. The batter will be VERY dense. Place in a 13 X 9 baking dish and bake in a 325 oven for 25 minutes, then turn up the heat to 350 and bake another 25-30 minutes or till center comes clean with a toothpick.
