How to Make Tailgate Apple Cake


  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.
