Makes 20 servings.

Ingredients

5 cups tart apples, cored, peeled, chopped

1 cup sugar

1 cup dark raisins

1/2 cup pecans, chopped

1/4 cup vegetable oil

2 teaspoons vanilla

1 egg, beaten

2 1/2 cups sifted all-purpose flour

  • In a large mixing bowl, combine apples with sugar, raisins and pecans; mix well.
  • Let stand 30 minutes.
  • Stir in oil, vanilla and egg.
