Happy Birthday to ME

So yesterday was my birthday ... and I made a dang good cake to celebrate. I thought that I would share the recipe! (Just because there are apples DOES NOT mean that the cake is healthy!!)

German Apple Cake

3 eggs
1 c oil
2 c sugar
2 c flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
2 large apples, pealed & sliced
3/4 c diced walnuts

Mix eggs and oil until fluffy. Add sugar flour, baking soda, cinnamon, salt and vanilla. Dough will be stiff. Fold in apples and walnuts. Bake at 350 for 45 - 60 minutes.

1 pkg cream cheese
3 Tbsp soft butter
1.5 c powdered sugar

Mix and spread on cooled cake.

IT IS WAY WAY YUMMY! I usually peel my apples and then cut into wedges. (Remove the core) and then slice them into little pieces. Each piece will look like a rounded trapezoid.
