Apple Dapple Cake ~ by Caroline

I once entered this into the Spring Youth Fair
and it won a "Grand Champion" ribbon! 
It is soooo moist and flavorful (and a bit healthy with the apples in it ;-)
The recipe comes from a special cookbook that was given to me
by Richie and Lydia for Christmas. 
(Although, Richie had purchased a copy of this cookbook
for Lydia before they were married,
and so this recipe was first discovered by us girls a couple years ago. :-) 
The cookbook is a compilation of family recipes by Frances Anna Gillette,
who was born in Vancouver, WA, and raised in Yacolt, WA. 
It also has wonderful pictures in it!!

Cream together:
3 eggs
2 cups sugar
1 cup oil

Sift together:
3 cups flour
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt

Mix egg and flour mixture together.

1 cup coconut (optional ;-)
1 cup nuts, chopped (optional ;-)
3 cups apples, diced
2 tsp. vanilla

Batter of cake is stiff.  (Put into 13 X 9 greased baking dish.)
Bake at 350 degrees for 45 - 60 minutes. 

1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup butter
1/4 cup milk

Boil together for 3 minutes.  Put icing on cake right after baking when cake is hot.  After pouring icing on cake, use a meat fork, piercing cake all over the top so icing will seep in.
