Posted by auntbeesbakingThis cake was passed down to me by my Godmother. I always looked forward to making it every fall and it remains one of my favorites. May be done up a day or two before you need it. An alternative to the Cream Cheese frosting is to sift powdered sugar on the top. INGREDIENTS 2 lg. eggs 2 c. sugar 1/2 c. vegetable oil 1 tsp. vanilla 2 c. flour 1/2 tsp. salt 1 tsp. baking soda 2 tsp. cinnamon 1/4. tsp nutmeg (I use cinnamon since I don't like nutmeg) 4 c. peeled, diced apples (Northern Spy the best or Granny Smith or McIntosh) 1 c. chopped walnuts (I toast mine first @ 300º for approx. 8-10 min) Cream Cheese Frosting: 1 (3 oz.) pkg. cream cheese, room temp. 3 TB butter or margarine, softened pinch of salt 1/2 tsp. vanilla 1 1/2 c powdered sugar DIRECTIONS Beat eggs until light and fluffy. Gradually add sugar, oil and vanilla. Sift together in separate bowl the flour, salt, bkg. soda, cinnamon and nutmeg; add to first mixture. Stir in apples and nuts. (NOTE: if mixture is too heavy for your mixer, use your hands to finish mixing) Put batter in a greased 9" x 13" pan and bake at 350º for 45 min. Let cool in pan, then spread with Cream Cheese Frosting or sift powdered sugar on top. Cream Cheese Frosting: Mix all ingredients together until smooth.
