Source: Gourmet Magazine
Yield: 1 9"x13" cake

2 cups sugar
1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons (1-1/4 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups all purpose flour
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 pounds Golden Delicious apples, peeled, cored, coarsely grated
1 cup walnuts, toasted, chopped
Purchased caramel sauce, heated (optional)

Preheat oven to 350°F. Butter and flour 13"x9"x2" metal baking pan.

Using electric mixer, beat sugar, butter, eggs, and vanilla extract in large bowl until smooth. Add flour, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder, and salt and beat just until blended. Stir in apples, then walnuts.

Transfer batter to prepared pan. Bake cake until top browns and tester inserted into center comes out clean, about 55 minutes. Cool in pan. Cut cake into squares.

Poster's Notes:
The caramel sauce isn't necessary. Boost the payoff with a scoop of ice cream.
