This is a great recipe that my Amish Aunt gave me. It's moist and really delicious. When you mix it up, it looks like it is WAY too thick, but it bakes out wonderfully.







1 1/4 c. vegetable oil
2 c. sugar
3 eggs
2 c. flour
1 tsp. soda
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. vanilla
3 c. diced apples

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Put cold water into a bowl with a tablespoon or two of lemon juice, “Fruit-Fresh” preserver, or a bit of cider vinegar in it to keep apples from discoloring. Prepare apples by coring, peeling, and then chopping into pieces about 1/2” diced. Drain well just before adding to the batter.

In a large bowl, cream together oil, sugar, and eggs. Add the flour, soda, and salt, last of all, mix in apples and vanilla. Mixture may be a little stiff at first, but the juice from the apples will make it thinner.

Turn into greased and floured cake pan (9 x 13 inches). Bake for 45 minutes, test for doneness with a toothpick (will be done if toothpick is clean when inserted and pulled out). Pour topping over cake while still hot.

Cool, cut into squares.

(Bake for 1 hour and 25 minutes if you decide to use a Bundt pan.)


1 c. brown sugar
1/2 c butter (1 stick)
1/4 c. milk
1 tsp. vanilla

Bring to a boil and boil for 5 minutes. Pour over cake while mixture is still hot.
