Recipe of the day, Apple cake

Its apple time in Washington state. Apples, apples everywhere.  My next door neighbor gave me a lug of apples. So, what to do with them?  Here's a great recipe given to me by an online friend. Her family owned an apple orchard in eastern Wa. Here is her Great grandmothers recipe from the first great depression.

Grannys raw apple cake

4 cups diced apples
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup oil
2 eggs beaten
2tsp vanilla
2 tsp soda
1 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
2 cups flour
1 cup chopped walnuts

Stir together apples, sugar,oil,
add remaining ingredients, stirring well
pour into greased 9x13 pan
bake at 350 for 1 hour
Optional: sprinkle with powdered sugared  before serving

This is a wonderfully  moist cake that makes the whole house smell good while cooking
