Mama’s Fresh Apple Cake

Preheat oven to 350.  Grease and flour a tube pan.  I use one like this:


  • 4 cups apples chopped
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 eggs separated
  • 3/4 cup cooking oil
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon

Pour sugar over apples and let stand.  Beat 2 egg whites until stiff.  Add egg yolks and stir.  Add cooking oil to egg mixture.  Beat well and let stand.  Mix together pecans, flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon.  Pour egg mixture over apples.  Add dry ingredients.  Stir with wooden spoon.  Bake at 350 in greased and floured tube pan for 1 hour and 15 minutes or until cake tests done.

This cake is better the second or third day after baking! I guess it is.  By the third day it is usual long gone!
