In honor of my birthday, I'm posting one of our family's favorite birthday cakes! I copied it right from my Aunt Vickie's original handwritten card, so its been in the family for a long time.
Stir and let sit for about 15-20 minutes:
4 cups chopped apples
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 teaspoons vanilla
Sift and add to eggs and apples
2 cups flour
2 t baking soda
2 t cinnamon
1 t salt
1 cup walnuts
Bake at 325 degrees for 45 minutes or until crumbs don't stick to a toothpick.
Top with cream cheese frosting:
3 oz cream cheese
3 T margarine
1/2 t vanilla
Beat and add 2 cups powered sugar. If it gets too thick, add a little bit of milk at a time.
