Makes 20 servings.
5 cups tart apples, cored, peeled, chopped
1 cup sugar
1 cup dark raisins
1/2 cup pecans, chopped
1/4 cup vegetable oil
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 egg, beaten
2 1/2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

- In a large mixing bowl, combine apples with sugar, raisins and pecans; mix well.
- Let stand 30 minutes.
