Harvest Apple Cake

Apples are good to eat all year through, but during the fall season I like to use them to make other tasty delights besides pie. This apple cake is so full of flavor. The batter is very thick...........almost like cookie dough...........but not too firm. After it bakes, it has a crust like top...............like brownies.
When you cut into it, it is soft and chewy.........and so delicious! It fills the house with the most wonderful aroma of apples and cinnamon. Enjoy!

Harvest Apple Cake
2 large eggs
2 cups sugar
2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 cup oil
1 3/4 oz. (1/2 cup) chopped walnuts, toasted *
2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 cup golden raisins
3 cups diced apples
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour the bottom of a 9-by-13-inch baking pan.
* Place walnuts on baking sheet and toast at 350.F for 10 minutes. This makes the flavor of the nut come out in the cake and the nuts do not get soggy.
In a large bowl, lightly whisk the eggs. Stir in the sugar, cinnamon, oil and walnuts.
Sift together the flour, salt and baking soda and add to the mixture. Stir in the raisins. Stir in the apple pieces. The batter will be thick. Spread the batter into the prepared pan. Bake until a skewer inserted in the middle comes out clean, about 45 minutes.
Cool completely at room temperature. Run a knife around the inside edge of the pan to loosen the edges of the cake from the pan. . Cut into squares. Great to eat by itself or serve with vanilla ice cream, whipped cream or caramel sauce
