German Apple Cake

This is by far one of my favorite things about fall... German apple cake. 
This is also a great recipe if you need to bring a dessert to a holiday party. 
However, this is not diet friendly nor diabetic friendly. 

- 2 eggs 
- 1 cup of vegetable oil 
- 2 cups of white sugar 
- 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon 
-1/2 teaspoon of salt 
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract 
- 2 cups of all purpose flour 
- 1 teaspoon baking soda 
- 4 cups of apples, peeled, sliced very thing
- Pinch of nutmeg 
- Pinch of powdered ginger

The key to this recipe is mixing. 
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. 

Flour and grease a cake pan.

Mix the eggs and the vegetable oil thoroughly until they have a creamy consistency. Add the vanilla to the liquid mixture. 
Slowly add the sugar, mixing thoroughly. 

Combine the dry ingredients separately. Slowly add to the liquid batter until thoroughly incorporated, it's going to get a little difficult to stir the batter as you continue.

Fold in the apples to the mixture. 
Pour into the prepared pan. 

Bake at 350 degrees for 45-50 minutes. 

Once the cake is cooled, you can dust with confectioners sugar or homemade icing from confectioners sugar, water and holiday spices.
