When searching thru my mother’s old recipe box, this was one of our favorite during apple season.
2 cups apples peeled and chopped
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup pecans, chopped (optional)
1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
Mix apples with egg and vegetable oil. Add the dry ingredients and blend well. Batter will be stiff. Place in a 9 inch pie plate sprayed with non-stick spray. Bake in 350 preheated oven for about 40-45 minutes until toothpick inserted comes out clean. This recipe can be doubled and put in a 9 by 13 can pan.
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup cream
1 Tablespoon flour
1 teaspoon vanilla
Mix flour and white sugar, add brown sugar, butter and cream into a saucepan. Boil for 1 1/2 minutes. Remove from heat and add vanilla.
To serve: Place the cake on a plate and drizzle caramel sauce (can warm in microwave) over the top. If you want you can also serve with a dallop of whipped cream.
