Ingredients

3 c
cooking apples, peeled and sliced
1 1/2 c
vegetable oil
2 c
sugar
3
eggs
2 Tbsp
vanilla extract
3 c
pre-sifted flour
1 tsp
salt
1 tsp
baking soda
3 tsp
cinnamon, ground
1 c
pecans or walnuts chopped (reserve some for decoration)

TOPPING:

1 c
brown sugar, firmly packed
6 Tbsp
butter
1/4 c
evaporated milk

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat over to 325 degrees. Grease a 9" x 13" glass baking dish or pan.

Prepare apples and set aside.
2
Blend the oil, sugar, eggs and vanilla extract; add the flour, salt, baking soda and cinnamon. Mix well; stir in the apples and nuts.

Pour into prepared pan and bake for 45- 55 minutes - until done.
3
Topping: Combine brown sugar, butter and milk in a small saucepan; bring to a boil and pour immediately over the baked hot cake. The icing will partially be absorbed into the cake leaving a caramel topping. Trim with reserved nuts. Do not cut for at least 1 hour. Yields 20 squares.

Note: If canned apples are used, use 1 1/2 cans of unsweetened pie apples. Drain apples and pat with paper towels.
