Recipe by Lesley Anne

My grandmother used to make this cake for me. It's what I requested for my birthday cake. She would add about 3/4 cups of pecans to the batter. It is absolutely wonderful!

Sorry, but this recipe made a sugary, soggy mess. I don't know what happened! I'm a somewhat experienced cook, and I followed the recipe to the letter, and the "cake" became, at best, kind of a mushy cobbler. And leftovers the next day had a bunch of oil sitting in the bottom. I'm at 6200 feet, but I've done quite a bit of baking with very few problems, and certainly nothing like this. I've double-checked that I followed the recipe to the letter, and frankly, I'm puzzled as to what went wrong....

  1. Combine oil, sugar, eggs and vanilla in a mixer.
  2. In a separate bowl mix together flour, salt, soda and cinnamon.
  3. Mix until batter is combined.
  4. Add apples, raisins and nuts (optional).
  5. Bake at 325 degrees for 60 minutes. (I typically have to increase the temperature to 350 for the last 15 minutes of baking.).
