Apple coffee cake

Apples and raisins keep this cake moist -- which means more flavor with less fat.

Ingredients

5 cups tart apples, cored, peeled, chopped
1 cup sugar
1 cup dark raisins
½ cup pecans, chopped
¼ cup vegetable oil
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 egg, beaten
2 cups all-purpose flour, sifted
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Lightly oil 13- by 9- by 2-inch pan.
  3. In large mixing bowl, combine apples, sugar, raisins and pecans. Mix well and let stand for 30 minutes.
  4. Stir in oil, vanilla and egg.
  5. Sift together flour, soda and cinnamon, and stir into apple mixture about a third at a time – just enough to moisten dry ingredients.
  6. Turn batter into pan.
  7. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes.
  8. Cool cake slightly before serving.
