    This is a moist dense cake that is good on its own but also great topped with icing. It keeps well and is good for any occasion.

    Ingredients
    Serves: 24 

    • 1 cup (250ml) vegetable oil
    • 2 eggs
    • 2 cups (440g) white sugar
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
    • 2 cups (250g) plain flour
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1 teaspoon bicarb soda
    • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
    • 4 cups apples, peeled, cored and diced

    Directions
    Preparation:20min  ›  Cook:45min  ›  Ready in:1hour5min 

    1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. Grease and flour one 20x30cm cake tin.
    2. In a mixing bowl beat oil and eggs with an electric mixer until creamy. Add the sugar and vanilla and beat well.
    3. Combine the flour, salt, bicarb soda and ground cinnamon together in a bowl. Slowly add this mixture to the egg mixture and mix until combined. The batter will be very thick. Fold in the apples by hand using a wooden spoon. Spread batter into the prepared cake tin.
    4. Bake into the preheated oven for 45 minutes or until cake tests done. Let cake cool on a wire rack. Once cake is cool serve with a dusting of icing sugar or with a cream cheese icing.

    OMG this is awesome good! It just doesn't get any better than this! I kept all measurements and ingredients the same, only adding 1 tsp. of vanilla to the batter. It bakes to an almost cookie-like crunchiness on the top with a very moist and apple-y interior. I took it over the top by pouring over a caramel glaze: 1/2 cup butter, 1/2 c. brown sugar, and 1/4 c. cream. Bring to a boil, then boil 3 minutes. Remove from heat and add 1/2 tsp. vanilla. Let cool just slightly before pouring over warm cake. Hubby says the "sauce" was what made this extraordinarily good, but this cake is so good, so delicious, a simple sprinkling of powdered sugar would be just fine too. I don't EVER want to lose this recipe! Thanks so much for sharing it!  -  01 Jan 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
