"A man who was fond of wine was offered some grapes at dessert after dinner. "Much obliged," said he, pushing the plate aside; "I am not accustomed to take my wine in pills."--Jean Antheleme Brillat-Savarin, The Physiology of Taste

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix eggs, oil and sugar; blend well. Sift flour, salt, soda and cinnamon. Add to egg mixture. Add vanilla, apples and nuts. Mix well. Pour into greased 8-inch tube or bundt pan. Bake 1 hour. While cake is still hot, pour hot topping over it in pan. Let cool. When completely cool remove from pan. (I check cake at 50 minutes with toothpicks. If it comes out dry looking, I leave it our and it will finish baking with itís own heat.)

Topping:
1 cup brown sugar 1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup milk 1 teaspoon vanilla

Combine all ingredients. Cook 2 1/2 minutes. Pour immediately over cake in pan.
