This is Jason's Grandma's apple cake recipe - now, to set the record straight she was not Italian, but she did pass on this fantastic, no-fail, super moist apple cake recipe!
Grandma's Apple Cake
Torta di Mele della Nonna
3 cups flour
1 cup oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
5-6 apples, thinly sliced

2 teaspoons cinnamon
In a large bowl, mix together all the ingredients except apples, beat until smooth.
In another bowl, mix sliced apples with cinnamon and 2 tablespoons of sugar.
In greased 10 inch tube pan, make layers of batter 1/3 at a time, then a layer of apples. Ending with apples on top.
Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour 15 minutes until a pick comes out clean.
In loving memory of Grandma & Grandpa~
