Apple Coffee Cake

Ingredients

• 5 cups apple (tart, cored, peeled, and chopped)

• 1 cup sugar

• 1 cup raisins (dark)

• 1/2 cup pecans (chopped)

• 1/4 cup vegetable oil

• 2 teaspoons vanilla

• 1 egg (beaten)

• 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour (sifted)

• 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda

• 2 teaspoons cinnamon (ground)

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees

2. Lightly oil a 13x9x2 inch pan.

3. In a large mixing bowl, combine apples with sugar, raisins, and pecans; mix well. Let stand 30 minutes.
