Apple Cake

My friend, Judy Gay, made this cake recently and it was heavenly! I plan on making it soon!

1 ¼ cup corn or canola oil
2 cups sugar
3 beaten eggs
3 cups chopped apples
1 cup chopped pecans
3 cups plain or cake flour
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. soda
3 tsp. vanilla

Sift dry ingredients 3 times. Mix ingredients in order given. Add vanilla. Cook in 2 – 9 inch pans which have been greased and floured. Put in cold oven. Bake at 325 degrees for about 45 minutes.

½ cup margarine or butter
1 cup brown sugar
¼ cup evaporated milk
½ tsp. vanilla

Melt butter and sugar together; add milk and let come to a boil. Cool. Add vanilla. Ice between layers and top.

Optional Glaze:
1 stick butter
¾ cup brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla

Bring to boil over low heat. Boil 2 minutes. Pour over cake while hot. Can be used instead of icing for cake.

This cake gets better with age...so make it ahead if possible.
