This cake is so moist and rich! One bowl, one pan! The most labor-intensive part is the paring, quartering, coring and slicing, but I sit at the table, using high performance tools and get the job done.
You will need a potato peeler, a heavy duty cutting knife, a very sharp paring knife, a cutting board and a large bowl. You will need to prepare a large pan with foil (NOT non stick-it doesn't come large enough to cover with one sheet) and some Pam. Of course you can just grease the pan and then have cleanup duty later.
1 3/4 cups sugar
2 heaping teaspoons cinnamon (I add dash of nutmeg)
1/2 cup oil
6 medium Honey Crisp, Cortland apples, or whatever tasty apple is available.
2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
Directions: Preheat oven to 350°. In a large bowl, mix the eggs, sugar, cinnamon and oil. Peel and slice the apples and add to mixture in bowl (coating as you go to keep apples from turning brown.) Mix together the baking soda and flour and add to the ingredients in the bowl. Mix well until all of the flour is absorbed by the wet ingredients. Pour mixture into one greased 9x13 or two 9″ round pans. Bake for approximately 55 minutes.
