Fresh Apple Cake

It seems like for many Christmases Memaw had a baking repertoire of cakes, pies, and candies. I remember fresh apple cake as a member of that repertoire. Here is her recipe from Just Plain Cooking.

Fresh Apple Cake (Memaw's)

3 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 1/4 cup oil
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 cups sugar
2 eggs
1 cup pecans
3 cups chopped apples

Chop pecans and apples.
Sift together all dry ingredients with the exception of the sugar.
Add oil and vanilla to dry ingredients and beat until it forms a very smooth batter.
In a separate bowl, beat the eggs until thick and foamy. Gradually add the sugar and continue beating until well blended.
Fold the eggs and sugar mixture thoroughly into the flour mixture. Add chopped pecans and apples.
Pour into tube cake pan ( greased and coated with flour) and bake for one hour at 350 degrees F. Remove from oven and let cake remain in pan for 15 minutes. Then cool on wire rack.
