Family Recipe: Scord's Apple Cake

Well, you can tell by the picture this is a popular treat. My mother visited Mrs. Ruth Scord, nee. Strike (my father's biological sister) in the 1960s and came home with this family recipe. This particular cake was enjoyed on Thanksgiving this year at my sister's home.

2 eggs
2 cups sugar
1 1/2 cups corn oil
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 Table spoons Lemon Juice
1 teaspoon salt
3 cups flour
1 Tablespoon cinnamon
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
3 cups peeled apples, diced
1 cup Chopped pecans

Beat eggs, add next four ingredients & cinnamon. Beat in flour, salt, soda. Add apples and pecans. Bake in greased and floured tube pan at 325 degrees F for 1 1/2 hours. Let stand 15 min before removing from pan. Optional: While cake is still warm, frost with 1 cup of powdered sugar and juice of one orange.
