BJGourmet sent me this wonderful dessert cake... It was given to her by JLO248... Thank you both very much for sharing this recipe...
3 c sugar
2 tsp baking soda
1-1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1-1/4 tsp salt
3/4 c vegetable oil
3 large eggs
1-1/2 tsp pure vanilla
4 large Granny Smith apples
1-1/2 c walnuts, coarsely chopped
3 c all-purpose flour
Vanilla ice cream, or whipped cream
Preheat oven to 300 degrees and position rack in the middle of the oven. Grease bottom and sides of a 9"x13" glass baking pan.
Into a large bowl sift together the sugar, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. Whisk in the oil, eggs and vanilla until smooth.
Peel and core apples and slice about 1/4" thick (there should be about 6 cups). Add apples and walnuts to the batter and stir until coated well. Stir in flour just until combined well and spread batter evenly in baking dish.
Bake for 1 hour and 40-50 minutes, or until a tester comes out clean. Cool completely in the pan on a wire rack.
Cut into squares and serve with the ice cream or whipped cream. Wrap leftover cake in plastic and store refrigerated. Keeps one week...
