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.

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.

Combine flour, walnuts, raisins, cinnamon, allspice, baking soda, vanilla, and egg.  Add the sugar-apple mixture.  Pour into a greased and floured tube pan. I use a bundt pan.

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

A delicious nearly forgotten dessert:
