Grandma's Fresh Apple Cake

Grandma's Fresh Apple Cake, originally uploaded by suezlou2003.

Fall is Apple Time!! When my boys were growing up we took our annual trip to Eckerts to ride the wagon and pick way more apples than we needed!
Nowadays Tom and I end up going to pick "up" apples from the Country Store instead of picking them outselves!
This is a recipe from my mom that has become a tradition as much as picking apples. I usually make this at least twice every Fall!!

Grandma's Fresh Apple Cake
3 cups flour 3/4 cup oil
1 tsp baking soda 1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking powder 2 eggs, beaten
1 tsp cinnamon 1 cup chopped walnuts
1 1/2 tsp salt
2 c sugar 4 cups coarsely chopped apples

Mix together dry ingredients. Stir remaining ingredients except apples into dry mixtures. This is a very thick mixture. Stir in apples. I usually wash my hands really well and mix it with my hands.
Place batter into an ungreased tube or bundt pan.
Preheat oven to 350 and bake 1 1/2 hours.

Try it!! You'll house will smell as good as mine!!
