Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
4 cups finely chopped, peeled cooking apples (such as Golden Delicious, Rome, Granny Smith, Jonathan or Newtown Pippin)
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup oil
2 beaten eggs
2 t. vanilla
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 t. baking powder
2 t. cinnamon
nutmeg, to taste (optional)
1 t. salt
1/2 t. baking soda
1 cup walnuts -- optional (I didn't use)

Cream Cheese Frosting:
8 oz. cream cheese -- softened (I use light)
1 T. milk -- approx., may need more
1 t. vanilla -- (1-2 t.)
4 cups powdered sugar -- sift if desired

Grease and flour two 8 or 9 inch round baking pans or a 9x13 baking pan.

Combine apples and sugar. Add oil, eggs, and vanilla. Combine flour, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, and soda. Add to apple mixture; stir just until combined. Stir in nuts, if using. Pour into prepared pans.

Bake at 350 for 30-35 minutes (about 35 min. for a 9x13 pan). Cool layers in pans on racks 10 minutes. Remove from pans (leave 9x13 cake in pan). Cool completely. Frost with Cream Cheese Frosting.
