Shelby’s Apple Cake

My friend Shelby shared this family favorite with me. I haven’t tested it yet, but will soon.

  • 2 cups sugar
  • 3 cups flour (your choice)
  • 1½ tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp. vanilla
  • 1¼ cup oil or melted lard
  • 3 cups apples, peeled and chopped coarsely
  • ¾ cup walnuts (optional)

Mix sugar, flour, cinnamon, soda and salt. Add eggs, vanilla and oil; mix well. Add apples and nuts; stir. Pour into a greased 9×13-inch baking pan; bake at 325°F for 45 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.
