Careful, folks, the batter for this is full of awesome, so you may want to eat it all before you bake it, but hold out - the cake's pretty great, too.
Chunky Apple Cake
6 medium apples (peeled and cored)
1 ½ cup sugar
½ cup vegetable oil
1 snack sized Musselman’s Chunky applesauce cup
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 Tablespoon vanilla
2 cups flour
Preheat oven to 350F. Grease and flour a 9x13” cake pan. Cut apples into large chunks (about three-quarter inch cubes) and set aside. In a large bowl, whip together eggs and sugar until light and fluffy. Mix in applesauce, oil, cinnamon, baking soda and vanilla. Stir in half the flour until combined. Stir in other half of the flour. Fold in the apple chunks. Spread batter into prepared pan. Bake for 50-55 minutes or until toothpick inserted into cake comes out clean and toothpick inserts into apple chunks easily. Cool, slice and serve.
(If you don’t have chunky applesauce snack packs, use ¾ cup vegetable oil.)
