Apple Chip Cake


Family recipes provide a special connection to the past, so I wanted to grace the Thanksgiving buffet at my grandmother's house with one of Mother's favorite recipes. My father has always loved her apple chip cake, so it seemed the perfect choice for remembering her this Thanksgiving.

Apple Chip Cake
This moist cake is delicious served any time of day.
1/2 cup oil
2 cups sugar
3 well-beaten eggs
3 cups chopped, uncooked apples
1 cup chopped nuts
3 cups plain flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon soda
2 tablespoons vanilla

1 stick margarine
1 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup cream
1 teaspoon vanilla

Combine above ingredients, stirring in nuts and apples last. The consistency of the mixture will be more like dough than batter. Bake in a greased tube or Bundt pan at 325 degrees for 1 hour and 15 minutes. Cool on wire rack, then invert onto a serving dish. Melt margarine on the stove top, and stir in remaining ingredients for topping. Bring to a full boil, let it cool, then spread it over the cake.
