Peel apples. I used 4 1/2 medium sized apples to fill 4 cups. I also used half Fuji apples and half Red Delicious. The combination made the cake tart and sweet at the same time.


Dice apples into small cubes.


In one mixing bowl, combine eggs and oil. Beat with an electric mixer, then add white sugar, brown sugar and vanilla. Beat until mixed well.


In another bowl, combine flour, salt, baking soda and cinnamon.


Add the egg mixture into this bowl, mix until well combined.


Fold the apples in by hand. Batter will be very thick.


Grease and flour the baking pan, pour batter into pan. Spread evenly.


Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour and 15 minutes. Test doneness by sticking a toothpick into the middle, if it comes out clean it is done. Let cool (at least an hour).


Remove cake from sides of pan.


Hold on …let’s just admire how great this cake looks already.


Ok…I’m done being full of myself. Hey, it’s not everyday something this fantastic comes out so…fantastic.


As cake is cooling, make lemon icing.


Combine all ingredients for icing together, mixing with a spoon.


Drizzle over cooled cake.


Admire your great skill in baking.
