1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 cup chopped pecans
3 large Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored, and diced
1 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup evaporated milk
1 stick margarine or butter (1/2 cup)
1 tsp vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350. Grease and flour a tube pan or bundt pan.
In a large bowl of an electric mixer, combine the oil, sugar and eggs. Beat on medium speed until well combined. In a medium bowl, sift together the flour, soda, salt and cinnamon. Add flour mixture to oil and sugar mixture and mix on low speed until combined. Fold in pecans and apples.
