4 large apples, peeled, cored, finely chopped (about 4 1/2 cups total)
1 1/2 cups coarsely chopped cranberries - (I used the ones in the bag you find in the produce section - I did not chop)
1 tbsp. lemon juice
2 c. flour
2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp. ground cinnamon
2 large eggs
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 c. granulated sugar
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 c. chopped pecans or walnuts (I didn't have any in mine)

Heat oven to 350. Grease and flour 9x13 pan.

Combine chopped apples and cranberries in a bowl; toss with lemon juice and set aside. In another bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon; set aside. In a mixing bowl, beat the eggs with oil, sugar and vanilla until smooth and well blended. Slowly beat in the dry ingredients until moistened. Stir in apple-cranberry mixture and the chopped nuts. Spread batter in the prepared pan and bake for approx. 45 to 55 minutes.

Cut into squares and serve topped with powdered sugar, caramel sauce or frost with cream cheese frosting.
