Omi's Apple Kuchen

My friend Helen gave me her mother - in - law's recipe for apple kuchen - and when apples are abundant, I make a new batch every few days.  It's such a great recipe because the ingredients are almost always on hand, it goes together really quickly, and it is absolutely delicious!  It's fabulous by itself, decadent with some good ice cream.

Here's the recipe:
1 1/2 C. sugar ( can use less)
3 large eggs
3/4 C canola oil
pinch of salt
1 1/2 C. flour
2 tsp. baking powder
2 tsp. vanilla
8 to 10 peeled Rome, Cortland, or other large good cooking apples
1 tsp. cinnamon
2 to 3 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice

Grease 9x13" pan.  Slice apples and add until pan is 2/3 full.  Add lemon juice and cinnamon. Set aside.
Beat sugar and eggs together until smooth.  Add oil and salt and beat.  Mixe in baking powder, flour and vanilla until smooth.  Spread on top of apples.
Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour until golden brown and apples are bubbling

Happy Eating!
