"As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy, and to make plans."--Ernest Hemingway

Directions:
Mix oil and sugar and then add eggs. Sift dry ingredients and add to this mixture. I mix with a wooden spoon. Then add chopped apples. Pour into three cake pans (greased, floured and waxed paper) and bake about 20 minutes (til golden and toothpick comes out clean) Prepare icing and ice when cake cools. (I toast my pecans in a skillet with a little butter - stirring constantly and removing to a plate once done (or they will continue to cook in skillet!)

Personal Notes:
This cake was a favorite for James and for DeeDee. I used to make this cake for both of their birthdays! As DeeDee got older, she really loved having this special treat! We would try to 'pack a party' and take supper (usually Popeyes -which she and Motsie loved!) and bake this cake. She always appreciated it and loved being with everybody. I can't make this apple cake without thinking of James and DeeDee!
