Apple Cake

This cake is one of my favorites for Fall. The sweet chunks of apples tucked into the moist cake, topped with a crispy cinnamon crust... perfect. Serve with chilled, lightly sweetened whipped cream, if you wish, but it isn't a requirement.

2 eggs
2 c. sugar
1/4 c. applesauce
1/4 c. oil
4 c. apples, cored, peeled, and chopped
*1/2 c. walnuts, chopped
2 c. flour
2 tsp. cinnamon
2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 c. sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon

Heat oven to 350°. Grease a 9 x 13" cake pan. Mix together eggs, sugar, applesauce, and oil. Add apples and nuts. In a separate bowl, mix together flour, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt. Add to apple mixture and blend. Stir in vanilla. Pour into cake pan. Combine sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle evenly over batter. Bake for 40 minutes, when toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
