5 cups apples, cored, peeled, and chopped
1 cup raisins
3/4 cup brown sugar

Olive oil cooking spray

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly spray a 13"x9"x2" baking dish or pan with cooking spray. In a large mixing bowl, combine apples, raisins, sugar, and walnuts, and mix them together well. Allow mixture to stand for 30 minutes. Then stir olive oil, vanilla, and egg into mixture. Sift the flour, soda, and cinnamon together, and then stir into the apple mixture slowly so that it keeps the mixture moist. Fold batter into pan. Bake 35-40 minutes. Let cool slightly before serving. Makes 20 servings. Be sure not to eat the whole thing yourself, it makes a great cake to bring to events, and it is low in fat for your weight loss plan and P90x workout.
