I pulled this out of my mom's, aka Julie's recipe box

  • 3 3 3 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 2 2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 1/2 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 1/2 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 1/2 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon (optional)
  • 1 1 1 cup chopped pecans or chopped walnuts
  • 2 2 2 cups of peeled, cored, and grated fresh apples or fresh pears (approximately. 2 lg)
  • 1 1 1 tbsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 1 1/4 1/4 cups vegetable cooking oil (Wesson Oil) or you can also substitute
  • 1 1/4 1 1/4 1/4 cups of applesauce in place of the cooking oil.
  • 3 3 3 eggs
  • Note: Do not substitute canola oil for the vegetable cooking. When you bake with canola oil, it comes out with a very strong undesirable flavor. Canola oil does not substitute well for cooking oil when used in baking recipes.
