Widow's Cove Print & German Apple Cake Recipe

I've decided I need to take time to enjoy this cooler weather. I love to sit outside and have my coffee on the porch. The cool morning breeze is amazing for this time of year and it looks like it's going to stay this way for a while according to the weather forecast. I added this new autumn print to all of my online stores.
The beauty of autumn has arrived at Widow's Cove where lighthouse keeper, Mel and his wife Molly reside. The leaves fall from the trees creating a tapestry of color on the ground and in the water. Molly is fixing a thermos of coffee and warm apple cake to take to her husband as he makes his nightly rounds at the lighthouse.
Here is Molly's yummy recipe:
(Actually came from my dear friend Winne)
"German Apple Cake"

1 1/2 Cup oil 1 1/2 Teaspoon cinnamon

2 Cups sugar 1 Teaspoon soda

2 Eggs 1 Teaspoon salt

3 Cups flour 1 Teaspoon vanilla

4 Cups sliced apples 1 Cup chopped pecans/walnuts

Mix together all ingredients except apples. Blend in apples. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour in an ungreased 9 x 13 pan. Recipe can be halved and baked in an 8 x 8 pan if it's just you and your hubby!
