Kathy's Apple Cake

I don't remember where I found this recipe.  I think that I started making it when we lived in Atlanta some 20 odd years ago.  This is an easy recipe that makes a nice,big, not too sweet cake.  It's very moist and great for
a brunch dessert. Tip:  the more finely you chop the pecans and apples, the easier this cake will be to serve.  You don't want the pecans to be powder or the apples to be mush, but finely chopped is better than a course chop.
Serves 12-14

Preheat oven to 350
Generously Grease & flour 10" tube pan

2 cups flour
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
2 eggs
2 cups sugar
1 1/4 cup vegetable oil
2 tsp vanilla
5 cups  fresh apples, peeled, cored, and finely chopped
1 cup pecans, finely chopped

Chop pecans in the food processor. Remove and set aside.  Chop apples in the food processor. Sift dry ingredients together twice.  Beat eggs and sugar until creamy.  Add oil and vanilla and beat until smooth.  Add dry ingredients and mix well.  Stir in apples and pecans.  Pour into a greased and floured 10" tube pan.

Bake 1 hour and 10 minutes at 350.
