German Apple Cake Recipe

Thanks to Carly for sharing both the recipe and the cake with us a couple dessert night's ago. For all of you who've been asking me, here's the recipe...

German Apple Cake:
2 large eggs (or 3 small)
1/2 cup oil
1/2 cup applesauce
2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups flour
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
4 peeled, sliced golden delicious apples

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Beat eggs, oil, and applesauce until smooth. Add the remaining ingredients, except apples and nuts and mix. Fold in apples and nuts.

Pour into 9x13 greased and floured pan. Bake for 45-60 mins at 350 degrees.

Cream Cheese Icing:
2 small (80z) packages of soft cream cheese
3 tablespoons melted butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar

Mix all ingredients together and ice the apple cake once it has fully cooled.

(Note: Carly used non-fat cream cheese in the frosting and it worked well.)
