1 cup vegetable oil

2 medium eggs

2 cups sugar

2 cups flour

1 cup pecans, small pieces

almost a whole cup of honey, although that can be less if you don’t want to go too heavy on it

3 teaspoons cinnamon

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 teaspoon baking soda

4 apples, peeled and diced

½ cup pecans for decorating



Grease a round spring form pan (if you’d rather use a different pan, it’s up to you. I just like the spring form)

Preheat oven to 375

Mix oil and eggs together, then add all dry ingredients and the vanilla extract. You want to add the apples last, and carefully (don’t use the mixer for this part, just a wooden spoon will do)


Pour batter into pan and bake for 30 to 40 minutes (everyone’s oven is different so you’ll have to kind of check when the toothpick comes out clean); when cake is done, drizzle the honey over the top and sprinkle with half a cup of pecans. If you want, you can put it back in the oven for another 5 minutes. It helps the honey settle in.
