German Apple Cake

It's the weekend! Bake something!

I got this recipe from my Aunt Lois. I didn't write down a frosting recipe with it so perhaps there is none. If you have to have frosting, find a cream cheese one. But I like this cake unadorned except for a crunchy top. Plus, with 2 cups of sugar, it's sweet enough to not need frosting.

2 cups flour
2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 cup vegetable oil
3 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
4 cups chopped apples
1 cup nuts -- pecans or walnuts are equally good
1 cup raisins

Preheat oven to 350. Lightly mist a baking pan with cooking spray or brush with shortening.
Mix all dry ingredients together. Add the oil, eggs and vanilla and stir. Mix in the apples, nuts and raisins. Batter will be thick!
Spread into prepared pan.
Bake for 1 hour.
