Mary Beth's Apple Cake

My sweet friend Mary Beth recently had a birthday. Back during the summer she shared her favorite cake recipe with me and so I made it for her on her birthday. And oh my goodness- it was AWESOME! A super moist cake that does NOT need icing of any kind. It's the perfect for the fall and would also be fabulous for breakfast!


Mix well:

1½ c wesson oil

2 c sugar

2 eggs


In separate bowl, mix together:

3 c flour

1 t salt

1½ t soda

1 t cinnamon

Add to wet mixture and mix thoroughly.


Add:

3 c fresh chopped apples (Golden delicious)

1 c chopped nuts (pecans)

2 t vanilla


Bake 1¼ hrs at 325 degrees in a floured 9 x 13 pan.


Here is what Mary Beth had to say about the recipe:

This recipe was given to my Mom by two sisters in Searcy, Arkansas in the 1950's. They had it handed down to them from their mother who received it from her mother. So it is very old. It's my favorite birthday cake and does not require icing. It gets more moist by the day.
