APPLE CAKE

(Inspired by a recipe from my friend Nancy)

2 eggs, well beaten
2 cups sugar
1½ cups vegetable oil
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
3 cups flour
1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
3 cups peeled and diced apples
1 cup coarsely chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a bowl, cream together the eggs, sugar, vegetable oil and vanilla; set aside. In another bowl, mix the flour, cinnamon, salt and baking soda. Stir diced apples and chopped pecans into the bowl with the dry ingredients. Mix contents of both bowls together. Bake in greased 9 x 13-inch baking dish or jellyroll pan for approximately 45 minutes. May take several minutes longer in the jellyroll pan and the texture will be like brownies.
