It was in Gram's original handwriting, didn't specify the pan size, and just said 'Bake 'til done.' I had to do some experimenting, but nonetheless, this has become a family favorite." Ingredients Cake:4 medium McIntosh apples, peeled and finely chopped (about 4 cups)2 medium Rome or Granny Smith apples, peeled and finely chopped (about 2 cups)1 tablespoon lemon juice3 eggs1 cup vegetable oil2 cups all-purpose flour1 1/4 cups granulated sugar1 teaspoon baking soda1 to 2 teaspoon ground cinnamon1/2 teaspoon salt1 teaspoon vanilla extract1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecansFrosting3 tablespoons butter, softened1 (3-ounce) package cream cheese, softened1 1/2 cups sifted confectioners' sugar1 teaspoon vanilla extract Instructions Preheat the oven to 350F. To prepare the cake, combine the apples and lemon juice in a medium bowl. Using a mixer at medium speed, beat the eggs until light. Add the oil and beat until well blended. Add the flour, sugar, soda, cinnamon, and salt; beat until smooth. Stir in the vanilla, apples, and nuts. Spread the mixture in an ungreased 13 x 9-inch glass baking dish. Bake 40 minutes, or until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool completely in the pan on a wire rack. To prepare the frosting, combine the butter, cream cheese, confectioners’ sugar, and vanilla in a medium bowl; beat with a mixer at medium speed until well blended and fluffy. This will be a very thin layer. Recipe by Agnes Regnaud, Spring Hill, Fla.
