Fresh Apple Cake


2 cups Winesap Apples

1 cup sugar

½ cup butter

1 egg

1 cup all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 Tablespoon cinnamon

½ teaspoon salt

1 Tablespoon Vanilla

½ cup chopped pecans


Chop apples; add sugar and let set 1 hour or until sugar is dissolved.  Mix flour, soda, salt, cinnamon, and nuts. Beat egg; add oil and vanilla.  When apples are ready, add to beaten egg and butter. Add other dry ingredients.  Mix well. Bake at 375 degrees for 25-30 minutes. 

Note: We recommend doubling this for a 9x13 pan.  The recipe said it makes a full 9x13, but it was a little skimpy.  We ended up cutting it up like brownies—and it was good!
