It’s apple picking season, and that means lots of apple cakes, and crisps, and pies.

Apple Cake

2 cups flour
1/4 cup wheat germ
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
4 cups peeled Granny Smith apples
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 cup chopped walnuts
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla

Sift together flour, wheat germ, baking soda, cinnamon, salt, and nutmeg. 

Combine apples, nuts, and sugars. 

Whisk together oil, eggs, and vanilla. Pour over apple mixture. 

Add flour mixture to apple mixture, stirring gently until well blended. Pour into a 13” x 9” x 2” greased pan. 

Bake at 350 degrees for 50 minutes or until cake pulls away from sides of pan.
