I have to use up more of my apples this morning. So, I was browsing recipes on line and saw this one and decided to give it a try. Henry and I made the cake together and had a great time. It got wonderful reviews so we'll see how everyone here likes it! I think this will make for the perfect after school snack!

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Grease a 10-inch tube pan or a 13x9-inch cake pan.
In a mixing bowl, beat eggs until foamy, gradually add sugar.
Blend in oil and vanilla.
Combine flour, salt, and baking soda.
Add flour mixture to egg mixture.

Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 1 hour and 15 minutes. Cake will spring back when touched.

Meanwhile prepare topping.
