This coffee cake provides a nice mix of apples, raisins, and pecans.
- 5 cups apple (tart, cored, peeled, and chopped)
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup raisins (dark)
- 1/2 cup pecans (chopped)
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 1 egg (beaten)
- 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour (sifted)
- 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon (ground)
1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
2. Lightly oil a 13x9x2 inch pan.
3. In a large mixing bowl, combine apples with sugar, raisins, and pecans; mix well. Let stand 30 minutes.
4. Stir in oil, vanilla, and egg. Sift together flour, soda, and cinnamon; stir into apple mixture about 1/3 at a time, just enough to moisten dry ingredients.
5. Turn batter into pan. Bake 35-40 minutes. Cool cake slightly before serving.
