German Apple Cake with Caramel Sauce

This German Apple Cake turned out moist and delicious. We ate it plain for breakfast over the weekend and we also served it to friends as a dessert with powdered sugar, whipped cream, and caramel sauce. It was a hit and it will definitely be added to our favorite list of baked goods.

German Apple Cake
2 eggs
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 1/2 cups white sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
4 cups apples - peeled, cored and thinly sliced

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare a 9x13 inch cake pan with cooking spray or by buttering and dusting with sugar. In a mixing bowl; beat oil and eggs with a mixer until creamy. Add the sugar and vanilla and beat well. Combine the flour salt, baking soda, and ground cinnamon together in a bowl. Slowly add this mixture to the egg mixture and mix until combined. The batter will be very thick. Fold in the apples by hand using a wooden spoon. Spread batter into the prepared pan. Bake for 45 minutes or until toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Once cake is cool serve with a dusting of confectioners' sugar and following caramel sauce.
