n From Carol Kearfott of Fairfield:

"This is an apple cake sure to please apple lovers. It is fast and easy and sure to please a crowd of people!"

Apple Dump Cake

4 cups apples, peeled and diced

1 cup walnuts, chopped (optional)

2 cups sifted flour

1 cup sugar

2 eggs

2 teaspoons vanilla

2 teaspoons baking soda,

Dash of salt

2 teaspoons cinnamon

½ cup vegetable oil

Use a large bowl to mix all of these ingredients together. The batter will be lumpy and thick, do not worry, it will be OK as long as this mixture is blended well. Pour into a greased 13- by 9- by 2-inch baking dish. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 to 50 minutes.
