Brian’s Apple Cake

Here is a old family favorite:

BRIAN’S APPLE CAKE

 This recipe comes from my brother’s kitchen; he used to make it for my birthday.

Ingredients:
4
cups apples, chopped (approximately 5 granny smith apples)
2 cups sugar
1 cup oil
3 cups flour
1 cup Walnuts, chopped
1 cup dark raisins
1-1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
½ teaspoon allspice
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 egg

Pour sugar over apples and mix.  Add oil to sugar-apple mixture and soak for 1 hour.

Bake in 325° oven for 1-1/4 hours.

Notes:  Timing:  Up to 1 hour, 30 minutes.  I have used up to 6 Granny Smith apples.  Don’t soak the raisins.
