  • 2 tsp (10 ml) ground cinnamon

  • cold milk as needed
  • chopped nuts, optional
  • Beat eggs until foamy.
  • Add the oil and sugar and hand stir.
  • Add the dry sifted ingredients.
  • Fold in the apples and nuts, do not stir hard, you have to keep the little air bubbles in the batter safe!
  • Bake in a 9x13 inch cake pan at 350 degrees (175 C.) for 60 minutes.
  • Cool the cake and ice it.
  • As an optional garnish, you can sprinkle more chopped nuts on top of the icing.
  • Icing Directions:
  • Cream together the cream cheese and the butter, carefully to keep it from warming up too much. It needs to be a cool room temperature.
  • Add the other ingredients and blend well, using cold milk as needed to give you the consistency you life. (We like ours thicker, and a touch of milk goes a LONG way, so be careful).
