Ginny's Apple Nut Cake

This cake was developed by my Mom in an attempt to use the ever abundant apples from our one old tree in our backyard in California. We loved it as kids, and now it's a hit with all of our guests here in the heart of Washington's apple country.

Ingredients Lemon Cheese Icing
2 eggs, beaten 3 ounces cream cheese, softened
2 cups sugar 2 Tablespoons half & half
1 teaspoon vanilla 1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup oil 4 cups sifted powdered sugar
2 cups sifted flour 1 Tablespoon lemon juice
2 teaspoons baking soda 1 teaspoon vanilla
2 teaspoons cinnamon 2 teaspoons grated lemon peel
3/4 teaspoon salt Dash salt
1 cup chopped walnuts Yellow food coloring, optional
4 cups finely diced apples

Beat together eggs, sugar, and vanilla. Beat in the oil until smooth. Sift together the flour, cinnamon, and salt. Stir dry ingredients into egg mixture. Add nuts and apple and mix well. Put in a greased and floured 13 x 9-inch pan. Bake at 325 degrees for 1 hour. Cool cake and spread Lemon Cream Cheese Icing. Store in refrigerator.

Lemon Cream Cheese Icing: Beat all ingredients together to from a fluffy frosting. Add more sugar or more half & half if necessary to make a good spreading consistency. Garnish with apple slices dipped in lemon juice if desired.
