This is a delicious, moist cake that my mother has made for years. I don't know the cake's real name, but it is delectable. I have yet to meet a person who does not like this cake.
This cake is so good, it doesn't need icing!
Peel, core and slice apples to desired size (I prefer a little thinner than apple pie slices).
Grease well a 9x13 cake pan or an angel food cake pan.
Stir flour, sugar, oil, eggs, baking soda, cinnamon, salt and vanilla in a large bowl.
Stir in apples and chocolate chips.
Pour batter, which will be very thick and lumpy, into pan.
Bake at 375 degrees for 1 hour.
Store in an air-tight container or cover with saran wrap.
***Tips*** if using an angel food cake pan, be very careful when removing it from the pan, it sometimes falls apart. if using a regular cake pan, serve right from the pan. ***If cake seems to be a little dry, place slices of apples on the top of the cake until you are ready to serve.
