What You'll Need
  • Cake
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 1/2 cups vegetable oil
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 large tart apples, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • Topping
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease bundt pan. Sift flour with baking soda.
  2. In a separate bowl, cream oil with sugar until light and smooth. Beat in eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Fold in flour mixture. Gently fold in apples and vanilla. Mixture will be thick.
  3. Spoon mixture into prepared pan. Bake until skewer inserted in center of cake comes out clean, about 1 1/4 hours.
