Autumn Apple Cake

I teach 3 year old preschool at my church, and I love it. One of my favorite things about my job is the fellowship with the teachers. We have a birthday lunch each month and I always enjoy what the other teachers bring. Leslie shared this recipe from her aunt during our September lunch. We all loved it - especially the crunchy top of the cake! :)

Autumn Apple Cake

1 cup vegetable oil
2 cups sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
3 cups peeled and chopped apples (she used Granny Smith)
2 cups flour
1 1/2 tsp soda
1 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup nuts (optional)

Beat together oil, sugar, eggs and vanilla. Sift together flour, soda, salt and cinnamon. Mix it all together mixing well. Add apples and nuts; pour into greased and floured 9 x 13 pan. Sprinkle with 1/2 cup sugar and 1/2 tsp cinnamon. Let stand one hour then bake for one hour at 350 degrees. Enjoy warm as is or with whipped topping or vanilla ice cream!
