Apples are among my favorites of the fall harvest. My mom’s apple cake has been a family treat for as long as I can remember and so tasty, I often prefer it in lieu of a more traditional birthday cake!
1 cup canola oil
2 cups sugar
2 ½ cups self-rising flour
3 cups apples, chopped and peeled (about 3-4 apples)
½ cup pecans, finely chopped
1 package butterscotch chips
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
In a large bowl, combine eggs, oil, and sugar; add flour and stir well to combine. Stir in apples. (Hint: This takes some elbow grease, as the dough will be very dense) Pour and spread mixture into lightly greased 9x13 pan. Sprinkle pecans and butterscotch over the top. Bake 55-60 minutes, until golden brown and cooked through. Best served warm.
