  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cupĀ  sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/2 cup raisins I like golden raisins best
  • 4 medium apples peeled, cored and diced (I like Golden Delicious best)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a wet measuring cup (the glass kind, or a small bowl) mix together the oil, water and eggs until it's all combined (well as best as possible.)
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer (or in a mixing bowl) combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg.
  3. Once this mixture is well-combined, run the mixer on slow and gently pour in the wet mixture until all is combined. Fold in the apples, pecans and raisins.
  4. Spread the mixture evenly into a 9x13 pan that has been sprayed with non-stick spray (or use butter). Bake for one hour at 350 degrees.
