10-14 large McIntosh apples, peeled, cored and quartered
1/3 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons cinnamon
1 tablespoon lemon juice

3/4 cup oil
1 ½ cups sugar
3 eggs
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt

Preheat oven to 350 F. Spray a 9 by 13 inch Pyrex baking pan with nonstick cooking spray. Place on a baking sheet, lined with parchment paper. Prepare the apples and place in a large bowl. Toss with the sugar, cinnamon and lemon juice. Place apples in the baking dish. They should totally cover the baking dish quite generously. If you find you need more –now is the time to do it. It is almost impossible to use too many apples in this recipe.

In a large bowl, hand mix the oil and sugar; then add eggs and vanilla. Fold in flour, baking powder and salt to make a very gloppy, thick batter. Pour batter evenly over apples. Shuffle pan a few times. Place on baking sheet and bake 50-70 minutes (it varies, depending on how juicy apples are) or until cake is set up and slightly browned on top. Cool a little before serving.
