Apple Pecan Cake
- 5 cups tart apples, cored, peeled, chopped
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup dark raisins
- 1/2 cup pecans, chopped
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 1 egg, beaten
- 2-1/2 cup sifted whole grain flour
- 1-1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1. Preheat oven to 350º F.
2. Lightly oil a 13x9x2-inch pan.
3. In a large mixing bowl, combine apples with sugar, raisins, and pecans; mix well. Let stand 30 minutes.
4. Stir in oil, vanilla, and egg. Sift together flour, soda, and cinnamon; stir into apple mixture about 1/3 at a time, just enough to moisten dry ingredients.
5. Turn batter into pan. Bake 35 to 40 minutes. Cool cake slightly before serving.
